Poll: Will you watch the Rose of Tralee?

Will you be tuning in?

IT’S THAT TIME of year, folks. The Rose of Tralee is back and there’s nothing you can do about it.

Daithí Ó Sé will again host the festival which will see dozens of roses battle it out for the crown.

However, despite the 1.7 million who tuned in last year, the festival has had its detractors who say the whole event is misogynistic and old-fashioned.

The pageant will be screened on RTÉ One at 8pm on Monday and Tuesday coming.

So, we want to know: Will you watch the Rose of Tralee this year? 

Poll Results:

No (9378)
Yes (2232)
I don't know (706)
