International Rose of Tralee Maria Walsh will be in Wexford today (Tuesday) as she launches the local search for the next Rose of Tralee.

Maria will visit Ferns NS, where current Wexford Rose Deirdre Miskella is a teacher. The 2014 winner will then meet the Mayor of Wexford Cllr George Lawlor over afternnon tea and take part in a number of press engagements in Whites of Wexford. The general public are then invited to come along for a meet and greet with the Rose from 4.30pm to 5.30pm.

From the outset, Maria has captured the imagination and interest of the Irish media appearing on the Late Late Show and the New Year's Eve Live programmes on RTÉ, national newspapers and various print publications.

She will travel to Belarus with Chernobyl Children's International in February, New York and Washington DC in March and to Australia in May.
