Rose of Tralee

Leitrim Rose: Imelda Scally



Hello, my name is Imelda Scally, I’m 26 years old and I am absolutely delighted to be representing the Lovely Leitrim as their Rose in Tralee! I am originally from Roscommon where I grew up in a small village called Loughglynn. I have very fond memories of playing GAA with my two brothers Brendan and Christopher and my only sister Ann-Marie for our local club.

I completed a BB in Marketing with PR & Event Management in Sligo IT. After I graduated I was fortunate enough to attain a job in hospitality and from there the interest and passion grew for weddings and events. I am currently working in The Landmark Hotel in Carrick on Shannon as the Wedding Sales Manager. This is my absolute dream job! My biggest career achievement to date is winning Ireland’s best Wedding Coordinator in February of this year –I am so humbled to have won.

Something I am really passionate about and I always have faith in is that positivity is key! My vision as the Leitrim Rose is to inspire young women to have confidence and belief in themselves! I am so excited for my Rose journey and I cannot wait to see you all in Tralee!
