Will McGrath working as an escort? SIM member and amateur magician Will McGrath,(pictured middle back) will soon be working as a male escort. Fear not however as Will has been chosen to be the Kildare escort for the upcoming Rose of Tralee Festival. Posting on his Facebook page Will says he was chosen from dozens of hopefuls at an event last Saturday night in Kilashee. For international visitors the festival is a bit like Miss World yet not at all like it. Ladies from or with Irish lineage compete in what was parodied in the superb Farther Ted as a "lovely girls contest". Each lady is accompanied for their time at the Festival by a chaperone or as they are rather coloquially names "escorts".
