To celebrate the Carlton Hotel’s sponsorship of the Rose of Tralee International Festival, we have a fabulous competition for one lucky reader, where you and a friend will live like a Rose for the weekend at the Carlton Hotel in Tralee.
Daithi O’Sé famously met his new bride and former New Jersey Rose Rita Talty at the Rose of Tralee, and many other romances have blossomed between the Roses who travel down to Tralee representing their Rose Centres and the young gentlemen who escort them during their trip.
Rose of Tralee winners Diane Hannegan (1984) and Luzminda O’Sullivan (1998, pictured below) met their respective partners in Tralee, and last year’s Donegal Rose Maria McCole met her partner, Leinster and Ireland rugby star Sean O’Brien at the 2011 Rose of Tralee festival.
With the above in mind and to celebrate their sponsorship of the Rose of Tralee International Festival, the Carlton Hotel Group is looking for couples who have become lovestruck at the festival (or a Rose of Tralee event) and they want to offer them an opportunity to win some great prizes. If you are a couple who met as a result of the Rose of Tralee Festival or event, visit www.facebook.com/carltonhotelgroup and submit your story, be it funny, romantic, crazy or just quirky to be in with a chance to win one of the many great Carlton prizes on offer. If you are fancy-free, there are plenty of Rose events coming up and opportunities to meet your partner, and Carlton offer special wedding packages to these lucky couples www.carlton.ie/roseweddings
To celebrate the Carlton Hotel’s involvement with the festival, RSVP has a fabulous Rose Package to give away to one lucky reader.
This rejuvenating package includes a two night bed & breakfast stay for two at the Carlton Hotel in Tralee with a glass of sparkling wine on arrival plus an afternoon of pampering to help you and your friend get summer ready! Remove tired, dry, wintery skin with the complete body polish, preparing your skin for a muscle-melting full body massage to ease tensions away or a relaxing customised facial with scalp massage…….you choose! They will then file and paint your fingers or toes putting the pep back in your step and preparing you for the season ahead!
To be in with a chance of winning this fabulous competition, please answer the following question.
Daithi O'Sé and Rita Talty met at the Carlton Hotel in which county?
