Veon Sponsors a Rose Escort at the 2018 Rose of Tralee International Festival

Veon Ltd, Ireland’s leading forest management company, is proud to sponsor one of the 57 Rose Escorts who will be a part of the 2018 Rose of Tralee International Festival which celebrates 59 years this August.

Daniel O’Connell, Veon’s Regional Manager in the South West, has been chosen as Rose Escort for this year’s Festival, pictured above with Ms. Imelda Scally, Leitrim’s 2018 Rose.

Daniel commented that the selection process for the Rose Escorts was nearly as daunting as the selection process for the Roses and that he was honoured to be chosen for the event. He will now focus his attention from cultivating trees to ensuring that the Roses will bloom during the weeklong Festival which runs from Friday 17th to Tuesday 21st August.
