County Leitrim and Lough Rynn Castle welcomed the International Rose of Tralee Tour to Leitrim last Tuesday. It was the first time the tour has ever visited County Leitrim,
There was a great festival atmosphere at Lough Rynn Castle where the roses were treated to a VIP arrival reception. Entertainment was provided by the Kiltubrid Pipe Band on arrival and Rackish Traditional Irish Music group entertained the 32 Roses at a private buffet dinner later that evening.
The Roses arrived in Carrick on Shannon on Wednesday morning by the Moon River Cruiser to the awaiting public who turned out to support our very own Leitrim Rose Zara Healy.
The Roses then visited the Arigna Minning experience before returning to Lough Rynn Castle for a Gala Ball, where the roses experienced the magic of tradional Irish music, song and dance and all that Lovely Leitrim has to offer.
The Roses departed Lough Rynn Castle on Thursday morning and made their way to Limerick where they met the escorts, before travelling onto Tralee on Friday.
