Now in its 14th year in Luxembourg, the Rose of Tralee selection ball continues to be a highlight of the international community calendar.
It was in 2002 that Luxembourg launched its first participation in the Rose of Tralee contest to find the girl who best represents modern Irish femininity. The Grand Duchy has since sent 13 girls to represent Luxembourg at the final or regional finals in Ireland. And the Luxembourg centre has even produced one overall winner, European School teacher Nicola McEvoy being crowned the Rose of Tralee in 2012.
Now five girls from Luxembourg are vying to become the next representative. Aedammair Ní Chiardha from Dublin, Eimear Ryan from Limerick, Elisha Bernie from Wexford, Maria Enright from Kerry and Victoria Thompson from Dublin will hope that they are chosen at the selection ball on 7 March.
The ball is always a fun affair, featuring a pre-dinner reception, three-course meal, drinks, entertainment, the Rose selection and dancing until 3 a.m.
Tickets cost €85 per person and reservations can be made via email: [email protected] Tickets must be paid via bank transfer before Monday 2 March--bank details available on the Luxembourg Rose website.
