Search for the Mayo Rose comes to Westport

It may be hard to believe but Mayo native Maria Walsh from Shrule is already half way through her term as the International Rose of Tralee.

The fashion industry professional, who is based in Philadelphia, and represented that state in the competition in Kerry last August, was in Westport recently to start the search for a Rose to represent Mayo at the 2015 festival.

The Mayo Rose selection night will take place in the Castlecourt Hotel on April 11 and the closing date for applications to the competition is March 27.
