The Rose of Clare festival is now in existence since 1979. The Festival is designed to cater for all age groups and is a “Fun” week. While there are many social and sporting events through the week, the Highlight of the Festival is the selection of the “ Rose of Clare”. This is now a very prestigious event with contestants from within and outside the County. Sixteen contestants were interviewed on stage over two nights by Colm O Connor of the Cork Examiner. There is also a panel of judges who interviewed the girls privately and interacted with them socially through the week. The announcement of the winning Rose took place on the final night.
