Tipperary Rose Aisling O’Donovan gets great send-off from her native Fethard

Published 2 months ago 08th August 2022 by Reporter

Friends, family and locals all packed into Lonergans Bar, Fethard, on Monday night last, August 1, to show support and well wishes, while giving a music filled send-off to the 2022 Tipperary Rose, Aisling O’Donovan, as she embarks on the nine-day ‘Rose’ Tour of Ireland, on route to the International Rose of Tralee Festival and Live TV Show on August 19-23.

Aisling O’Donovan, Coolmoyne, Fethard, who will represent Tipperary in this year’s ‘Rose of Tralee’ in KIllarney.

Since chosen to represent Tipperary in this year’s international Rose of Tralee Festival, Aisling, from Coolmoyne, Fethard, has endeavoured to embody the ethos of this significant international event. Since March she has travelled the length and breadth of Tipperary, experiencing its heritage and culture, and without fail, everywhere she visited she was greeted with a warm and robust welcome. Aishling, one of the busiest Tipperary Roses the county has seen, has been attending numerous events across all areas of the county so far this year.

The fitting send-off tribute, organised on Monday, August 1, by Aisling’s family, neighbours, and friends, was an opportunity to extend best wishes to Aishling and allow her time to relax and enjoy the company of her friends and family before setting off on the international ‘Rose Tour of Ireland’. A local bonus this year, is the ‘Rose Tour’ will be stopping in County Tipperary and especially Fethard, on Sunday, August 14, which will be hosted by Tipperary County Council and Tipperary Tourism.

Photographed at the reception for Tipperary Rose, Aisling O’Donovan, are L to R: Conor Walsh, Sinead O’Donovan, Teresa O’Kane and Ash Donohoe.

Thanks to Roseann, John and Andrea Carroll and staff in Lonergans Bar, for facilitating a most enjoyable evening. The event was attended by Aisling’s family, including her father Sean, her mother Breda, sisters Teresa and Sinead, her fiancé Colm, aunts, uncles, cousins, neighbours, and many friends who travelled far and wide to show their support for the graceful, poised, and articulate young lady from Coolmoyne, Fethard.

The evening was enhanced by the myriad of singers and musicians from Aisling’s family, her sisters Sinead and Teresa, cousin Pierce Maher and the trad band who joined him, her Aunt Mary and Colm’s sister Sarah Barry all performed music and songs befitting the event.

L to R: Teresa O’Donovan, Sean O’Donovan, Aisling O’Donovan, Breda O’Donovan, and Sinead O’Donovan.

Aisling thanked everyone for attending, stating that she can’t wait to go to Tralee. She also expressed that so far her experience as Tipperary Rose was wholesome, positive and amazing. We would like to wish Aisling well, as she and her fellow Roses, travel to Tralee for the International Festival which takes place from August 19 to August 23, 2022, which will be broadcast live on National TV. We will be waiting patiently to watch Aisling showcase Tipperary on the international stage. Go n-eiri leat, Aisling!
