I can see why Daithi is the first kerryman ever to get the gig....he is cringeworthy...

Watched the second half of last nights goings on at the Dome . Confirmed what I have been saying for 5 years plus , The Rose is past its sell buy date .

Formula now seems to be  , young girl with Irish roots goes on year out , somewhere nice and warm  prefarably , ( nobody goes to Afghanistan ), Oz and USA preferred ,  resurfaces in a couple of years as the **** Rose . And you dont have to be ultra presentable , just able to gush a bit and exchange banter a bit on stage . Used to be you had to be able to "do a decent turn " .

Would you encourage  your daughter to enter ?

Normally the winner will stand out , occasionally a close buckle , and they will do Tralee proud , but that does not always guarantee it's a good show .

past its sell by date - you got to be kidding?  Top tam ratings for the entire year - advertiser's dream.
Report Kelly August 24, 2010 1:41 PM BST
If TAM ratings ( or whatever ) prove that kerrybhoy , the country is in a worse state than I thought .

Apart from the committed , few would have found last nights proceedings great viewing  , certainly what I saw . There is a sentimental attachment to the format , Dev would have loved it .  Comely  ( ? )dancing at the crossroads etc .  But very little dancing nowadays , sometimes it is like American Idol if any of you have ever had to suffer the early stages of that .

People will vote with their feet .

A poor line up this year, won't take a lot of winning.A quick look at the stats tells me that the double has never been achieved,so my advice would be lay London.My source in Tralee informs me that the kerry rose has a much better chance then her 16/1 price and may well be crowned the first Kerrywoman since 1964 to keep the title in the Kingdom.

fair play to anybody that does well, or earns good qualifications or whatever, im all for it. But its nice to show a bit of humility at the same time. this country has a generation of smug people who are feeding off their parents wealth, i meet them every day. maybe i ws hard on her (the winner) but she made no attempt to perform a party piece, which should be mandatory, last years winner didnt either, smacks of...oh im too precious to make an eejit of myself. maybe im suffering from an inferiority complex.. well done irish guy i hope you cleaned up.. night all

Well done OP

Why should somebody have to do a party piece - not everybody is comfortable on stage in front of a packed auditorium and thousands more on TV

Anyway, some that did sing or dance were utter **** and would have been better off doing nothing

It's not X-factor or "Tralee's Got Talent"

Last 2 years prove you dont have to "do a turn " to get the judges eye . In former days they basically did not give the winners nod to girls who could only talk .

A fair number of the "turns " were cringeworthy  , and badly advised for those who look at it as a talent show . Sadly looks like you are better just not getting on your feet when your call comes .  And I thought the "turn " bit was obligatory for any potential winner .  Things change , and not always for the better .

Winner has multinational / ethnic appeal , and relates ( in name anyway ) to the largest congregation of supporters / marketable visitors / etc in these islands . As someone else says , it is purely a marketing exercise , get the visitors in !

PS , the Yanks aren't travelling  , its a long way for the Aussies ( despite their strong currency ) , best chance staying local ( or neighbourly ) .
