Rose of Tralee

Westmeath Rose: Leanne Quinn



I am originally from Coralstown but currently reside in Newmarket on Fergus “The Rose Village” in Co. Clare. I turned 25 this summer and am the eldest of five siblings. With an interest in people and behaviours, I studied BSc Psychology at the University of Limerick and graduated in 2016 before moving to Dublin to work in Management Consulting at Accenture, Ireland.

Throughout my time at university, I also lived in Canada, Scotland and New York. Finding a grá for health and fitness while in Dublin, I qualified as a fitness instructor and personal trainer and decided to return to UL to further my studies. Currently in my postgraduate degree, MSc Sports Performance, I'm very excited to be working with Munster Rugby for my thesis.

With a flair for public speaking and powerlifting, I hope to lift some spirits at this year’s festival and throughout my year as the 2018 Westmeath Rose.
