Laura Hay, Ottowa Rose

We learn from Ottowa East EMC that Laura Hay is the 2010 Ottowa Rose of Tralee.

To lift a quote from Desmond Devoy, "Now, there was a "party piece," segment, equivalent to the talent competition, but this proved to be a worthy afternoon's entertainment. U of O student Callaghan danced a jig in her traditional Irish dance costume, while Fiona Duffy, a nurse, administered CPR to an oversized, stuffed Curious George doll. Hay, who works at Indian and Northern Affairs, showed a small video of her adventures running in snow shoes while Lynch, the Marketing Director for the Ottawa School of Art, drew an Ottawa 67s logo onto the face of a very obliging host Michael O'Byrne of CTV News at Noon, like the ones she does for kids at hockey games at the Civic Centre".

The full piece is here, no pics unfortunately.
