Laois Rose Grainne Hogan is heading off to Tralee next week (not in her tractor) where she is ready to have a ball and represent Laois proudly.
WATCH her special video message here, as she spends a last moment with her pet ewe Rosie!
Best of luck Grainne, ewe will be outstanding in your own field!
See Tuesday's Leinster Express for a full interview about her love of farming, her hopes for Tralee, and exclusive photos of Grainne on the farm.
