2022 Dublin Rose Claire Connolly said: “We are so excited to launch our search for the 2023 Dublin Rose, and although I will be so sad to give up the Dublin Rose sash, I can’t wait to meet the women entering this year’s selection and welcome one of them into the Dublin Rose family.”

Dublin Rose Centre co-ordinator Rachael O’Brien: “We are so thrilled to be partnering again this year, with The Talbot Hotel Stillorgan for our 2023 Dublin Rose Selections. The team at the Talbot Hotel have been so good to us; and we can’t wait to hold our 2023 selections on June 3rd and 4th this year.
