Rose of Tralee

Offaly Rose: Katie Kehoe



My name is Katie Kehoe and I am 20 years old. I was born and bred in Tullamore, County Offaly. I am currently studying Primary School Teaching in Mary Immaculate College Limerick and will be going into third year come September. My life mostly centres around my family, friends and GAA.

I play both Camogie and Gaelic football for my club and I also play with Offaly Ladies Football team. I am very lucky to play along side two of my three sisters both at club and county level. As well as training every day of the week I am kept busy helping to coach the underage football teams and I am currently managing Tullamore Minor ladies. I love being outdoors and being active and so I fill my spare time with walks and cycles with friends or family!

To relax I love sitting down with popcorn and watching a good film or reading a good book. Overall I would say I am a happy and positive person who looks out for others and tries to make the best of life! I am both excited and proud to be this year’s Offaly Rose and I am looking forward to seeing what this year brings!
