Tuesday night was a great success and I must admit the ‘socialising' went on well into the wee hours this morning. However, the BBQ organised by Tralee County Council on Wednesday afternoon definitely helped to nurse a few sore heads!
My official duties as a judge of the Rose of Tralee have now come to an end and I must say it was a great experience. It was my first time in Tralee for the entire festival and I would definitely recommend marking it in your calendar for next year as it really is a fantastic event.
Unfortunately I had to head back home on Wednesday evening so I didn't get to see Alexandra Burke perform. However, I did get to meet her and I found out the celebrity lifestyle isn't as glamorous as you would think! After her live performance in the Dome Alexandra then had to drive all the way back to Dublin, where we were lucky enough to host her at the Carlton Hotel Dublin Airport. Following only three hours sleep she had to get our bus to the airport to fly off to another event. I don't know how she did it!
