Well I wasn’t going to watch it. I refused to watch it but everyone on twitter was going on about it…..so I switched over and it doesn’t get any better! For those outside of Ireland, who may not have heard about it (lucky things), I’m talking about the Rose of Tralee. Which is Ireland’s version of Miss. World I suppose. Although there is more emphasis on education, personality and ‘talent’ instead of parading around in bikinis.
I had to laugh at this bit of it. What on earth happened to the band? It sounds like their batteries ran out at the end of the song!
Also what about this Rose who I thought looked like a demented chicken with anger management problems, although I don’t think that was the idea.
There are plenty more clips of the show on Youtube, if you want to
subject yourself to the torture watch them.
It all reminds me of Father Ted and the Lovely Girls competition.
What I’d like to know is why is there now male version of the show? We could have the ‘Thorn of Tralee’.
