“The Rose of Tralee opened so many doors for me.”
New friendships and fabulous opportunities. The Rose of Tralee opened so many doors for me. Having participated in the Rose of Tralee for two years, I was able to meet stellar men and women. A few Roses became future roommates and life-long friends. Our children are now friends and international playmates.
The Southern California center is especially fortunate to work with the American Ireland Fund charity events. I felt so privileged to meet Bob and Dolores Hope, Liam Neeson, Dana Delaney, Kenneth Brannagh and Gregory Peck. It was an honor to shake their hands, and an honor I would not have had without the Rose of Tralee. A shared Irish heritage and a love for Ireland can bring people together that are otherwise worlds apart. A special thank you to Terry Anderson for his support of the Southern California Rose of Tralee Center.
