The 2023 Rose of Tralee International Festival is officially underway after the first half was aired last night on RTÉ.
Presenters Dáithí Ó Sé and Kathryn Thomas interview the first 18 Roses including the Dublin Rose, Bethany Cushing. Less than half a million people tuned in to watch the first night of the Rose of Tralee.
The show kicks off again tonight, when the winner will be crowned the Rose of Tralee.
