Rose of Tralee

Roscommon Rose: Eimear Reynolds

I am Eimear Reynolds and I am 27 years old. I come from the picturesque village of Rooskey in County Roscommon along the banks of the Shannon. Music is my great passion in life and I graduated from Dublin Institute of Technology Conservatory of Music and Drama with a Bachelors degree in Music with Performance in 2015. I have been fortunate to build a career in performing throughout Ireland and abroad. I love travelling and meeting new people and consider myself lucky that music gives me the opportunity to do both. I have taught music to adults and children for many years and also work with local business in an initiative set up through our local arts centre called ‘The Office Choir’. My brother and I established the Roscommon Solstice Choir of which I am musical director. There are 150 members and together we have won prestigious awards nationally and internationally for our work within the community and contribution to voluntary arts. I am very excited and privileged to represent my county at the Rose of Tralee Festival this year and hope to do everyone proud. My wish is to continue to help develop and instil confidence within young people and showcase and nurture their skills, especially in rural Ireland.
