Tyrone Rose Of Tralee

Rocwell Natural Mineral Water are proud to be the main sponsor of the Tyrone Rose Final for 7 years which is held every April in the Greenvale Hotel in Cookstown. On the morning of the final, the Roses all take a trip to Rocwell Head Office in Pomeroy where they wine and dine before taking a guided tour of the factory. This tour brings fun and laughter to the Roses & Escorts because they have to dress up in hair nets, plastic coats and shoe covers before the factory tour. They then return to the Greenvale excited but nervous to prepare for the evening ahead with their Escorts carrying their complementary Rocwell to keep them refreshed and hydrated for their nerve wrecking stage interview with the hope to be the lucky "Tyrone Rose".

The Rose of Tralee festival is held annually every August in Tralee, County Kerry to choose a young lady to be crowned the Rose. The winning Rose is the lady deemed to best match the attributes relayed in the song: "lovely and fair". The winner is selected based on her personality and should be a good role model for the festival and for Ireland during her travels around the world.

All the staff at Rocwell Natural Mineral Water presented Catherine recently with a piece of Newbridge Jewellery which she will wear during her busy intinerary next week prior to the final. We wish Catherine the very best of luck in Tralee and her ventures thereafter as we have no doubt Catherine is the perfect "Irish Colleen" to represent Tyrone in style with her natural persona. Good luck Catherine!!!

Rocwell has had a long established association with the Tyrone Rose of Tralee, and the committee are hugely thankful for their ongoing support. Colin Hampsey, Tyrone Co-Ordinator for the Rose of Tralee International Festival, said "Without the invaluable support of local companies throughout the county and beyond we could not run this annual event, we are indebted to people such as Brian Quinn of Rocwell, and want to thank them sincerely for the continued support".
