Description   A group shot of all of the contestants who participated in the 1980 Rose of Tralee competition, at Dublin Airport in late August/early September of that year. The coach was sponsored by the tights manufacturing company Pretty Polly. All of the Roses are wearing their sashes and are holding plastic bags with the Pretty Polly logo printed on them. This still was one of two from this shoot published in an RTÉ Guide article about the competition, and the Zimbabwe Rose Lesley O'Connell in particular, on 12 September 1980.
