Donegal Rose of Tralee Zoe McGettigan is having a big night tonight!
Everyone is welcome to come along to the Orchard Inn Letterkenny to meet Zoe before she heads off to the Rose of Tralee International Festival representing Co Donegal.
The night starts at 8pm and includes some great craic with Host Lee Gooch and a fun Mr & Mrs.
Donations on the night are in aid of Bumbleance. This fundraiser is in memory of Jack Crossan who sadly lost his brave battle with Mitochondrial disease last month.
Bumbleance makes positive life impacts for sick children . It’s the national and world’s first interactive children’s ambulance service designed specifically for children, with the capacity to operate the latest medical equipment and inter-hospital communication systems. It ensures the transportation of a sick child to and from treatment centres is most safe and as comfortable as possible.
This year the Rose of Tralee International Festival is celebrating 57 years and all 65 Roses are going to enjoy the fun of the festival, attending various engagements, individual and group interviews then taking part in a qualifying selection which is also presented by Daithi O Se in the Dome.
There are two judging panels and from these selections 32 Roses will be chosen to proceed to the television selection nights on 22nd and 23rd August. The 2016 Rose of Tralee will get to wear the brand new crown for the first time designed by the lead sponsor Tipperary Crystal.
Our Donegal Rose Zoe McGettigan will be interviewed in the Dome on stage with Daithi O Se on Thursday 18th August.
