DERRY Rose Sarah Colhoun from Limavady is rallying her supporters to join her in the Dome on Thursday August 17 at the Rose of Tralee International Festival which runs from August 16-22.
Sarah will be among 64 Roses from all over the world to take part in this year's festival which will include parades, funfair, circus, over 70 hours of free and affordable entertainment, Fashion Show and fireworks displays.
Sarah, 24, a primary school teacher at Gaelscoil Léim an Mhadaidh, said. "This year, I hope to organise various fundraisers with all proceeds going towards Chest, Heart and Stroke, a charity very close to my own heart.
“I plan to raise the Doire flag at the peak of each of the highest mountains in the four provinces of Ireland. I intend to raise awareness of these various health conditions whilst also encouraging other members of the community to join me on this journey. Here's to the beginning of what is sure to be a fantastic and life-changing experience."
Prior to arriving in Tralee, Sarah will embark on a three-day tour taking in some of Ireland's top tourism landmarks in County Kildare, including the Irish National Stud and Japanese Gardens, The K Club, Lullymore and Kildare Village. All 64 Roses will stay at the magnificent Glenroyal Hotel and Leisure Club in Maynooth.
