The Laois Rose selection night is always one of the social highlights of the year and this year should be no different.

A packed room in the Portlaoise Heritage Hotel, often up to 20 hopeful girls in a prestigious, long-running event and an army of supporter in high spirits.

Throw in a presenter like Brendan Hennessy – who is liable to say or do anything – and you get a serious night’s entertainment.

One man who has been there for almost every Laois Rose selection night since they started in 2004 is Alf Harvey and his selection of images makes for brilliant viewing.

This year’s selection night takes place this Sunday, April 30, and tickets are €20 and are available at the Portlaoise Heritage Hotel or by calling the Laois Rose co-ordinator Lyn Moloney on 083 4631611.
