Meet Waterford's Barony of Gaultier Rose Festival contestants

Waterford's Barony of Gaultier Rose Festival takes place in Dunmore East tonight (Friday 7th September). 

12 beautiful ladies will take to the stage at The Spinnaker Bar and Restaurant dreaming of being crowned the Barony of Gaultier Rose. 

Organised by Carbally Community Centre, the festival is celebrating its second year and guarantees to be a night not to be missed! 

The Carbally Community Development Project was set up two and a half years ago with an aim to improve community spirit. In that time they have made great strides in getting the community centre up and running and it’s now used by the local community and surrounding area. Activities at the centre include running a youth club, arts and crafts classes, language classes, holistic days, and Solas fun days.

The project has received great support from the public in achieving their goal of bringing life back into the community. They also run the Good Old Days Festival every July and this year had a great three day festival with a very successful ABBA night. Music was provided by the Jackson family. Michelle Jackson, who is the chairperson of the Carbally Community Development Project, also organised the Dancing At The Crossroads section with music by the children from the youth club.

The Barony of Gaultier Rose Festival will be judged by health and well-being coach Bernie Murphy, personal trainer Mags Murphy and Munster Express reporter Kieran Foley. 

The winner will receive her crown from the reigning Barony of Gaultier Rose Ciara Buckley and she will also get a beautifully engraved Waterford Glass bowl along with a cheque for €150 and a lovely bunch of flowers.

Raffle tickets on the night will be €2 or three for €5, with prizes including vouchers for The Spinnaker and for Hallmark Jewellers. Music on the night will be provided by Three For The Road. The Roses will meet for a meal at 6pm and the second sitting starts at 7pm. €23 for a three course meal. The Rose interviews start at 7:15pm. Entertainment in the back bar from 7-9pm, with dancing until late.
