Pictured at ‘Axis Mundi’ to celebrate their First Birthday Bash on Saturday night last were Lisa Kavanagh the newly crowned Waterford Rose who represented Faithlegg House Hotel and Kerrie McFadden, winner of “I’m A Celebrity - Get Me Out Of Here!” wife of Bryan McFadden, ex-Westlife. Lisa was crowned the Waterford Rose also on Saturday night at the Tower Hotel. Axis Mundi is no stranger to celebrities having had Manchester United’s John O’Shea and Yvonne Keating, Miss Ireland gracing their premises over the past highly successful year.

WATERFORD girls are invited to take part in one of Ireland’s most loved competitions, the Rose of Tralee. This will be the first time all 32 counties will have a chance to be represented at the festival.

Rose contestants are ambassadors for their local community. They give each county a chance to celebrate its heritage along with other Irish communities worldwide.

In fact, the festival itself tries to connect Irish people from across the globe, wherever they find themselves. All contestants must be Irish by birth or ancestry.

The Waterford winner will compete at a regional final at the Brandon Hotel in Tralee this June, along with the likes of Galway and Limerick. From this final, five girls will go forward to the televised event in August. The qualifying age is 18 to 27 years old, with the nomination fee just €100.

In previous years, it could have cost a lot more to nominate a Rose. The new fee makes the competition much more accessible. The contestants must never have been married or have any dependants. Also, they must not have competed in the event before.

The Rose of Tralee is not a typecast beauty contest. The winner is chosen more for her inner qualities, such as her charm, pride, independence, and genuine nature. Last year’s Waterford Rose, Lisa Kavanagh, will be on the selection committee for Waterford.
