As proud local media sponsor of the Laois Rose of Tralee 2019, the Leinster Express is happy to introduce this year's Laois Rose hopefuls.
Introducing Laois Rose 2019 entrant Megan King from Borris-in-Ossory. Watch her introduction video above and read her profile below.
"Hi everyone, my name is Megan King, I’m 24 and I live in Borris-in-Ossory, a great village in Co. Laois. I am a primary school teacher and qualified 2 years ago from Mary Immaculate College in Limerick. I was blessed to get a job in Our Lady’s Meadow Primary School in Durrow another fantastic spot in Laois. I teach third class and have 28 boys and girls who brighten up my week and make me proud every day.
"I’m currently back in Mary I part-time completing my Masters in Literacy Education so I don’t have much free time but when I do I love getting outside and active alongside my little dog Buttons or trying new recipes. Apart from keeping fit and cooking, I have a variety of interests from reading, playing the piano and singing along to the radio. While I wasn’t lucky enough to be talented in the sporting area, I do love sports and enjoy watching it, especially hurling.
"I decided to enter the Rose of Tralee this year because I have promised my Mammy every year for as long as I can remember that I would and I thought it was time to fulfil my promise and jump out of my comfort zone! My friends and family have reacted great to the news and I feel I’ve given them something to look forward to!"
The Laois Rose selection night takes place on Friday, April 19 at Castle Durrow from 7.15 pm. Tickets €25 some available on the night.
