Ah, the Rose Of Tralee. Otherwise known as The Lovely Girls competition. 

Ireland's most glam festival is back this week and one thing we can guarantee is that there'll be a few new moments to add to this list. 

ROT is an event like no other around the world and feck it aren't we quite lucky to have it? Here are some of the best and maddest moments from down the years.

1. The time this Aston Villa fan got a message from one of her 'idols' and hadn't a notion who he was 

2. This proposal from 2013

3. Any time Daniel O'Donnell is involved

4. When the Cork Rose played with fire

5. That time the stage was invaded by a protester and no one knew what to do 

6. Not ACTUALLY at the festival but we couldn't overlook this Rose lip syncing to B*Witched

7. The escorts have to go to boot camp

8. This skit is fairly accurate

9. When BBC Sport presenter Gabby Yorath represented Leeds in 1991

10. Finally, this make-up tutorial
