Welcome to the Tipperary Rose Centre Website.
One of the 62 worldwide centres which make up the International Rose of Tralee Festival, the Tipperary centre has year after year forwarded quality candidates to the finals in Tralee, winning outright in 2008 when Tipperary Rose Aoife Kelly was crowned the Rose of Tralee for that year.
The 2013 Tipperary Rose is Aoife Shanley. Aoife is 26 years old and is from Clonmel in Co. Tipperary. Aoife has a building and engineering honours degree and is also an Infrantry Officer with the rank of Lieutenant in the Irish Army.
Throughout the selection process the Tipperary Centre will organize various social events for the benefit of this year's Rose and Escort candidates, as well as the selection night which will see one lucky young lady go on to go be crowned 2014's Tipperary Rose.
If you have any questions or would like to know more about the Tipperary Centre, please do not hesitate to contact us firstname.lastname@example.org, or find us on Facebook under "Tipperary Rose Centre".
The Tipperary Rose Centre would like to extend a huge thank you to all our sponsors. Without you, the event would not be possible.
