Wicklow - Roisin Long

My name is Róisín Long. I am 25 years old and hail from the sunny Southeast of Arklow, Co. Wicklow. I am honoured to represent the Garden County at the Rose of Tralee this year. I have recently graduated from Maynooth University where I studied Psychology and Irish. Rather than analysing the brain, I realised my passion lies in analysing all things fashion most recently becoming junior buyer and merchandiser for a fashion company in Dublin. In my spare time, I enjoy step aerobics, sea swimming, arts and crafts as well as enjoying time with my friends and family. I love to travel, most recently I went to Dubai, and I can’t wait to tick off many more places around the globe. I love being apart of and giving back to communities by fundraising for local charities and groups. I am the youngest in my family and a Rose among four thorns (sorry brothers!); I am the only girl. I am very excited to have my family in Tralee this year and I look forward to the many exciting experiences to come as the Wicklow Rose.
