Fermanagh's 2010 Rose

The Impartial Reporter has a long article all about Charlene Brady, the 2010 Fermanagh Rose. Charlene has amazing musical ability. She played two reels on the old fiddle on the selection night - not only that she is an All-Ireland Fleadh winner as a champion drummer.

Also on the night the Fermanagh Escort was chosen - he is Niall Oates. According to the Impartial Reporter he is Lisnaskea's Most Eligible Bachelor! He is sure of a warm welcome in Tralee. How does an Escort view the competition? He is reported as saying "I was phoned the Fermanagh organiser of the festival and she asked me would I take part and I thought why not. The Rose of Tralee was always watched by my parents and my grandmother at home so it's a popular show in our house and I thought I'd give it a go. I heard the experience is meant to be brilliant so I'm really looking forward to it".

The full story is here at the Impartial Reporter.
