Castletown's Trish Carty has been selected to fly the flag for Wexford at this years Rose of Tralee regional finals in Portlaoise over the June Bank Holiday weekend.

Trish (27) was recently selected as the Wexford Rose at a gala night in Wexford. 'It's a massive honour to be selected out of the sixteen who were in the running,' she said. 'I'm really overwhelmed by the support everyone has given me so far. I hope I can do everyone proud and make it to Tralee.'

Daughter of Dec and Kay, Trish lives in Gorey and works as a clinical nurse manager with the County Wexford Community Workshop in Enniscorthy. 'I work as nurse manager of St Anthony's unit day centre for adults with mild to moderate disabilities,' she said. Before that, she worked in Temple Street Children's University Hospital for 18 months. She holds a Degree in intellectual disability nursing and a H Dip in Children's nursing.

She sent a big thank you to her sponsors James and Caitriona Tomkins of Tomkins Garage, Gorey.

One Rose from each province will be selected at the regional final to go forward to the final of the Rose of Tralee competition. Seventy international Roses will also be present on the night, and 28 of them go forward to the televised final.
