    2013 Rose of Tralee - The Gathering of Lovely Girls!

    It's that time of year again and the show is broadcast as usual tomorrow and on Tuesday night on Irish TV.

    Here are this year's Roses.

    My kingdom for a soft shoe reel to the theme tune of "Dallas"!

    i met my local contestant when she was shopping for her dress a couple of months ago. i had a hard time containing myself and i couldnt really explain that i was so excited because each year, fred, who i never met and isnt really named fred, puts a thread with a link on an ice skating forum on the internet.
    I feel like I'm in a dream. But it can't be a dream because there are no boy dancers!

    Fred, your link isn't working....

    MLP, what can we expect your local Rose to be wearing?

    she bought more than one formal dress and a lot of clothes for the trip. the one i saw her try one was a little unfortunate. it was teal with no boob support. hopefully, she wont wear it on the telecast.

    It's a perfectly reasonable explanation if you ask me.

    I've looked for that one on youtube and never found it. What a loss.

    Anyone watching?

    Rose of Clare blends in with the blue background and is reciting a poem that would make a slam poet cry.

    I've met fred and this FSU tradition is just as exciting when you HAVE met the transplant from Queens, even if you haven't been lucky enough to have met any Roses in your local misses department.

    That dress does rather unfortunate things to Donnegal's chest.


    ETA: but the dress is better than her singing.

    You have to sing pretty loudly to be heard over that set background.

    Live proposal on stage for the New Orleans Rose by her boyfriend. How Baldwin-esque

    That was at least more entertaining than the overly long segment on dressing up for Mardi Gras.

    At least she wasn't asked about Katrina or some other hurricane.

    I have a cousin who has a teenage daughter who is very good singer; I think when she gets old enough I'm going to encourage her to try out to be the New Orleans Rose!
