Rose of Tralee - Sinead Rose Stayton

Well what an amazing time Sinead had representing New Zealand at the recent Rose of Tralee in Kerry.

Sinead was on the front page in the Irish Independent and made amazing friends during the festival.  Please see more photos in our Gallery and also a note from Sinead below.  Congratulations Sinead, I am sure we will see more of you in the coming years.

Words cannot express the gratitude I feel to have been given the opportunity to not only represent my country, but connect with my Irish roots, make lifelong friends and memories ???? 
I feel like I’ve found my place and I’ve grown into a new person! I have met the most inspiration and beautiful woman from all over the world that I’m proud to call my friends and Rose family. 
It’s not every day you can say you danced your heart out and spoke about your struggles on live television!!

I thank my family, friends, partner and centre for their endless support. Especially my family from Ireland, Australia, New Zealand and London that came to watch me.
To those that contributed to my travels, assisted with outfits, I thank you! 

And a massive congratulations to my dear friend Sinéad Flanagan 2019 Limerick Rose! I can’t wait to see the adventures that lay ahead for you xx

But journey doesn’t end here. This is only the beginning ☘️ Watch this space ???? 

Love, your New Zealand Rose
