The Laois Rose 2019 with MC Ollie Turner
After a wonderful night at the Laois Rose 2019 Selection in Castle Durrow this Good Friday, the winning entrant has been chosen.
The young woman who will represent her county proudly at the International Rose of Tralee this August is student nurse Sarah Bergin!
"I'm in such shock I can't believe it, I'm so happy, I hope I do Laois proud," she said on stage.
Sarah Bergin, (21), is originally from Clonad, just outside Portlaoise, but now living in Galway where she is her final year of General Nursing in NUIG.
Congratulations to her and to all the young women who took to the stage to represent their communities and sponsors. It was truly a night to remember.
