Rose of Tralee

Newcastle/Gateshead Rose: Ciara Harvie

I am 20 years old and live in the beautiful south east coast of Scotland. Since leaving school in 2015, I took a risk and followed my dream to become a classical singer. My passion for singing has given me many life changing opportunities, such as appearing on The Voice UK 2017 and representing the UK at the Tchaikovsky Conservatory in Moscow. I feel extremely fortunate to be able to support charitable events, most recently attending the "Art-football" campaign in Russia. Its aim is to support the ideals of Kindness and Humanity and raise funds guaranteeing treatment of seriously ill children. Closer to home, my spare time is spent visiting schools to share my experiences and inspire children to nurture their talents and follow their dreams. I’m a great believer that you can do anything if you put your mind to it! My mum is a proud Cork woman and I have many happy memories of family visits to my large extended family in Cork City. I am extremely proud of my Irish heritage and delighted to be joining all of the other Roses in Tralee this year!
