Liverpool Has a New Rose in Town

After a two-year break, the Liverpool Rose of Tralee returned this bank holiday weekend with the special event taking place at St Michael’s Irish Centre on May 4.

The festival is a world wide event with organisers looking for young women who best capture the famous love song of the same name – incorporating beauty, personality and a unique quality.

The Liverpool leg was won by Lisa O’Halloran, 24. Originally from Galway, Lisa moved to Liverpool in 2006 to study for an undergraduate degree in Psychology with Sports Science, a Masters in Sport Psychology and is currently studying for a PhD in Sports Psychology. Her research is in the area of elite football, and in the future she wants to work with athletes as an accredited sports psychologist.

After receiving the title, Lisa said “Thank you to all the girls and the organisers of the night – it was such a brilliant experience and my family had the best weekend”.

The festival organiser and former Rose, Grace Kelly, commented “A huge congratulations to all our six roses tonight; they did themselves, their families and sponsors proud”

“Each and every girl was outstanding and made the night what it was. Thanks to our sponsors Canter Levin & Berg and judges and huge congratulations to our Liverpool Rose 2013 Lisa O’Halloran. We are all backing you all the way to Tralee. Thanks everyone who turned out - it was a great night”

Canter Levin & Berg solicitor, Sean Carty, who was amongst the judges said, “It was an honour to be on the judging panel for this year’s Liverpool Rose of Tralee. All of the competitors did a grand job, the standard was very high, great craic was had by all. Many congratulations to Lisa, a worthy winner indeed”.

Lisa will now go on to represent Liverpool in the final stages of the Regional Final to be held in Co Laois, Ireland between 29th May and 3rd June.

Sixty girls from all over the world will get together for this four day event. From those sixty, thirty-two will be chosen to go through to the televised final in Tralee in Co Kerry in August.
