Rose dresses go on display

Come and see some of the dresses worn on stage by the winning Roses at the annual Rose of Tralee Festival. From the maxi-dresses of the 1970s to puffballs of the 1980s and the media-savvy glam of the Celtic Tiger, each era brings its own style. The exhibition features a quote from some of the Roses about the frocks – for instance, Kathryn Feeney, 2006 Rose, recounts how her dress was originally supposed to be her bridesmaid’s gown for her sister’s wedding, until the bride eloped to a tropical island.
