Kerry's hottest couple tie the knot in Tralee

I wonder when Rita Talty from New Jersey entered the Rose of Tralee back in 2008 did she think she would meet the love of her life in the form of one of the judges!  Whether it was her talent on stage or off, Daithi O’Sé certainly took a shine to the gorgeous Rita and in what must be one of the Rose of Tralee success stories, they announced their engagement this year.

Romantic to a fault, Daithi and Rita will have their wedding reception back in Tralee where they first met – in the hotel that hosts the famous festival, the Carlton Hotel Tralee on 12th July next year.

Daithi speaking about the venue said, “We picked the Carlton for a few reasons one of them being it was where we first met and after where our relationship blossomed, we feel a real connection with the place“.  .
We know the people there really well with their association with the Festival so we can trust them, they are pulling out all the stops for us” added the broadcaster, who already has “a few surprises” in store for guests.
