Philadelphia - Tara Ryan
Hello Tralee! My name is Tara Ryan and I am a 24-year-old Philadelphia native. I first joined the Rose community as a Rose Bud in 2007 and I am so excited to be back in Ireland and have the chance to represent Philadelphia in this year's Festival. I recently graduated with my Masters in Public Relations & Sports Media from Syracuse University and am currently doing Sports Marketing for two large International companies. As a lifelong athlete and a woman in the sports industry, I have a passion for fighting for young girls to not only be included in sports but for those girls to know that they belong in sport. My dad is from Portarlington, Laois where his nine siblings and dozens of my cousins/BFFs still reside. My mom's family is from Ballina, Mayo where I got to visit my family just this fall. Throughout history, my family has taken great pride in representing Ireland. From my Great-Grandfather in the 1916 Easter Rising to my brother, Shane, on the Irish National Team at the…
Florida - Rose Waldeck
Hello from the sunshine state! My name is Jennifer Rose Waldeck, and I am from Orlando, FL. I pursued my lifelong creative passion and graduated with my Bachelor of Fine Arts in Fashion Design from Parsons in New York City and am currently pursuing my Masters in Arts. Always ambitious, I am working my dream job as a product designer for The Walt Disney Company. I design accessories that help bring magic to our guests, including everything from jewellery to ears. Outside of work I enjoy furthering my knowledge of art history, travelling to new places, spending time with my puppy, and designing my own clothing, especially to wear to the Disney parks with friends. My passion for helping others always keeps me active with a variety of organisations, including those focused on empowering women. Having been involved with the Rose since 2014 as a Junior Rose, I’m honoured to be representing the Florida Centre.
Cork - Jenny Byrne
Hello, my name is Jenny Byrne and I live in Douglas, Cork, Ireland. It is an honour for me to represent the Rebel County at this year's Rose of Tralee Festival! I am a third-year PhD researcher at NUI Galway, researching employment opportunities for disabled women in Cambodia and Rwanda.
Sligo - Eiméar Mulvey
I am Eiméar Mulvey and I am 25 years old. I hail from the beautiful village of Geevagh, County Sligo. I am both honoured and delighted to be representing The Land of Heart's Desire, County Sligo. In 2019, I graduated with a Degree in Music and English from Maynooth University. It was always my dream to work for myself and be an entrepreneur. Thankfully, I have been fortunate enough to make this dream a reality. I am currently working as a full time dance teacher owning my business ‘Bróga Bríomhar Dance School’ where I strive to create a fun, relaxing and safe environment for children and adults to express themselves through dance. I have a huge passion for traditional Irish culture, heritage, music and dance in particular Sean Nós Dancing, the oldest form of Irish Dance in Ireland. I work with children and adults across Ireland boosting confidence, a positive mindset, enhancing performance skills and fitness. We cater from tots right up to adults. My ambition is to continue…
Donegal - Katie McAteer
My name is Katie McAteer, I’m 24 and I am delighted to be representing my county as the 2022 Donegal Rose. I grew up in a village called Rathmullan. I studied Journalism and New Media in UL, which allowed me to live in Barcelona and Glasgow. I work in Public Relations and Social Media. I love what I do as it involves doing something different every day. I am also involved with Rathmullan Film Fest, a community-led festival that encourages people young and old to be creative. I hope to continue working in the media industry as it doesn’t confine you to one specific area or job. I hope to travel more, write more and experience as much of the world as possible. Staying mindful and keeping fit are important to me. I play football for Milford GAA and enjoy walking the beach – it’s my favourite place in the world. I was raised by and am surrounded by strong women, and it is an honour to be surrounded by so many independent, strong, motivated women on this Rose of Tralee
Yorkshire - Charlotte Sellers
Hello, my name is Charlotte and I have recently turned 24. I am from Leeds, West Yorkshire and have grown up in a small town called Horsforth for most of my life. In my childhood I attended a local dance school, 'Joyce O'Donnell' and competed at a championship Level. At 18 I left Leeds and moved to York to study Social Work at the 'University of York'. Towards the end of my Degree, I won a local election and was elected as a Horsforth Town Councillor in May 2020. I graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Social Work and in March 2020 I began my first role as a qualified social worker in a Child Protection Area team. My role is very diverse, but I particularly enjoy working restoratively with children and families. I hope to really build on this and seek out new opportunities within my roles over the coming years.
