The Rose of Tralee returned to our television screens for the first time in two years, with host Daithi O'Sé welcoming the first 18 International Roses.
Taking place at Munster's Technological University's Kerry Sports Academy, the show returned for the first time in 2 years following the pandemic.
Last night's show saw the host Daithi O'Sé take a plunge into an ice bath, battle with a light saber, decorate cupcakes, and even conduct a scientific experiment.
The show also saw the Roses do many things on stage, including reciting beautiful poetry, perform emotional songs and sharing their ties to Ireland.
This show also marked the first Rose of Tralee allowing married women, trans women, for the first time in its history. However despite the changes to these rules, organisers revealed that no married or trans women were at the festival.
The winning Rose will be crowned tomorrow after the remaining 15 Roses have taken to the stage.
Check out the rundown of some Roses from last night's show below.
