Press A to start

She was lovely and fair as the rose of the summer.

The pale moon was rising above the Ardennes this morning after Luxembourg GAA’s very own Nicola McEvoy took the 2012 International Rose of Tralee title.

Painting the other Roses green with envy (along with Daithaí Ó Sé’s wife and boyfriend Eamonn with all the kisses), Nicola charmed and delighted her way through the 7-day festival concluding her performance with an incredible rendition of La Vie en Rose on the first night, along with regaling us with stories of giving school exams to her teddy bears!

Nicola looked genuinely shocked as the result was announced, but it was not just in The Black Stuff were everyon thought she deserved it, Paddy Power had her firm favourite after her stage performance.

Ronan O’ Gara may have faced some high pressure situations before, but such was his excitement at being face to face with Nicola he even forgot to remove the old sash before placing the new one on, but we’ll let him away with that in case Eamonn Dunne makes another voodoo doll.

Nicola, we are unbelievably proud of you and wish you the very best in your new adventure as the 2012 Rose of Tralee.
