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 nine of the best tweets...

"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

Poor aul always-the-bridesmaid Mayo.
#Roseoftralee if there is a Mayo rose in this...it'll probably end in draw.

Daithí is truly the personification of the word "shteak" #RoseofTralee

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
