The Kerryman and Tralee Library joined forces for this exhibition that exhibits memorabilia, ranging from photographs of past Rose festivals to tiaras worn by winning Roses.

 

Putting the exhibit together, staff at the library took on the exhaustive process of going through old copies of the Kerryman and picking out articles that they thought would be of particular interest.

 

The idea being to create a montage of highlights of the festival down though the years. Pictures of winning Roses surround the room which creates a sense of history.
