First TV Night in Tralee
Yesterday was a bit hectic here in Tralee for myself and the other Rose of Tralee judges as we had quite a bit to do before the live interviews aired from the Dome last night. As with last year though we did get through it all and were ready to go in plenty of time.
The Dome at the Carlton Hotel Tralee looked really well and was packed full of family and friends of Roses showing their support. The atmosphere in the place was amazing and must have helped the Roses relax as they were being interviewed. I’d like to take this opportunity to say congratulations to the Roses who were interviewed last night as they did really well and I look forward to seeing the others tomorrow night.
This morning it was another early start for me as we had TV3’s Ireland AM broadcasting live from the Carlton Hotel Tralee. I was interviewed by Alan Hughes about my duties as a judge on the Rose of Tralee but I had a hard act to follow as I came after our Group Spa Director, Sophia Weir, who did really well in her interview. Overall the broadcast was a great success and I’d like to congratulate Anthony Smiddy and his team at the Carlton Hotel Tralee for their hard work ensuring the hotel was camera ready!
I’ve got some preparation to do for tonight’s show but I’ll be back tomorrow with an update on how the final goes and of course to announce the winner of the Rose of Tralee 2011!
