Hi Everyone,

Weather has taken a little change but we are still enjoying some sunshine and nice afternoons so we hope you are making the most of it. 

As always we chat to our local girl representing the county as Kerry Rose, Celine O’Shea who comes from Caherciveen but is living in Cork. She tells us about life and likes and what she is looking forward to for festival week. We had lots of fun at our early morning photoshoot and enjoyed a chat and delicious breakfast at the Café, Ballyseedy Home and Garden when all was done. We wish Celine the very best in her quest to keep the crown in Kerry this year. We also have a sneaky peek of all the other roses too in this issue so save the pages and you can follow them on TV and choose your favourite. Of course there is lots happening festival week, one of our favourites is the Rose of Tralee Fashion Show, Zoe caught up with Kerry girl Erika Fox now living in New York and making waves in the industry, as she looks forward to coming home to judge best dressed at the show.  

We met with the amazing O’Neill Sisters who hail from Ballyheigue, words can’t describe their talent, you really have to go and see them for yourself but Lisa had a chat to them to try and find out the magic behind their amazing voices. 

There was lots happening around the county in July and we have all the pictures from various events in case you couldn’t make it. We are also bringing you some tips on getting back to school, it’s not too far away and you can never be prepared enough so check that out.

In the meantime enjoy some festival fun with the family and the last month of holidays before normality resumes.

Until next month
