2024 Rose Buds announced

There’s more to the Rose of Tralee than being a Rose or a Rose Escort because young girls from all over Ireland will each be paired with an International Rose during the festival in Tralee this August 16th-20th, 2024.

Thirty-two young girls have been selected as Rose Buds  for the Rose of Tralee International Festival which will take place this August. Aged between 6 and 10, the Rose Buds were chosen from hundreds of applications from children who applied this year.

Congratulations to every girl who participated in the selection process. The 32 Rose Buds this year are:

  • Alicia Russell
  • Ally Fitton
  • Annie O’Connor
  • Aria O’Donnell
  • Clara Cody
  • Clodagh Macken
  • Clodagh Lee
  • Dearbhla Ní Churraín
  • Ella O’Connor
  • Ellen Keogh
  • Emiliana O’Rourke
  • Eva Greensmyth
  • Hannah Butler

  • Róisín Murphy

The most important thing about being a Rose Bud is to have fun! Each girl will be twinned with a Rose, take part in the Festival activities with the Roses and much more during the week-long Festival. €5 from every entry will be donated to Barretstown Children’s Charity which offers free, medically endorsed camps and programmes that are designed for children and their families living with serious illness.
