How It’s New York: Watching something from home in a bar– such a New York thing to do! Whether home is Ireland, Australia, Israel, China.
How It’s Irish: The Rose of Tralee Festival has been running since 1939, and brings young women of Irish descent to County Kerry for a “global celebration of Irish culture,” including the Rose Parade.
Want to watch the Rose of Tralee, but you’re in New York? The only place to see it live is Slattery’s Midtown, 8 East 36th Street!
On their Facebook Page, they write:
Join us this Monday and Tuesday from 3pm till 6 pm to watch the Rose of Tralee festival live. The only Bar in New York that has coverage of this event
Happy hour all day
Event shown live with sound at the upstairs bar
Best of luck to all Involved
Erin Loughran NY Rose of Tralee
Caitlin McNeill Big Apple Rose of Tralee
And William Lee Escort
I’ll admit I really don’t know much about the Rose of Tralee Festival, but judging from the rather acrimonious comments on my little post here; it’s a competition that matters to a lot of you! So go along and have a pint, meet some pals, and watch the event! No matter who is representing the city, state, or Feis, all the ladies are beautiful and worthy of a toast in their names.
Now BigAppleRose also has a Facebook page, and posted this:
