It's that time of year again when 32 ladies come from all over the world to a small town in Kerry to have the chats with Dáithí Ó Sé, perhaps do a spot of Irish dancing (or even hoop acrobatics), and definitely DO NOT discuss their political views because how dare they.
As usual there was the mix of hi-jinx and banter you'd expect on your typical Rose of Tralee from Daithi eating raw onions to an impressive limbo and even a jive with Derek Ryan, but as is often the case in recent years, the running commentary on Twitter was where the real comedy gold could be found.
Here are 9 of the best tweets...
9. The Ultimate Rose.
"My father is a leprechaun and my mother is a pint of Guinness. I was born in a ring fort and love the taste of turf..." #Roseoftralee

3. Wait... that doesn't happen?
The only thing missing from the #RoseOfTralee is an auction at the end where the lovely girls are sold off to lonely farmers.

I wonder does it take long to capture Dotti from the wild every year and have him relearn English? #Roseoftralee
