Queensland - Eimear Naughton



I am Eimear Naughton, I’m 29 years old and I live in Brisbane. Originally from Roscommon I moved to Brisbane in 2015 to give the Aussie life a go, and it worked out because I absolutely love living in Queensland. I am an English and History teacher at St. Paul’s School, Bald Hills, which is a great school with amazing students and wonderful staff. Fitness is one of my passions. I split my time between the gym and Olympic weightlifting with the Honeybadgers Weightlifting Club. I love to see the empowerment women get from being involved in traditionally masculine sports. Languages and different cultures fascinate me. I speak French and am currently learning Spanish. My fiancée Jose is from Colombia, and we live together with our two cats, Binx and Chimmy. I am honoured to be the 2022 Queensland Rose and I’m looking forward meeting all the other fabulous Roses and experiencing the Festival.
