All happy

Rose of Tralee Nicola McEvoy with her parents, Michael and Mary: they stayed up all night talking, along with boyfriend Eamonn Dunne.

Pictured above are Nicola McEvoy 2012 Rose of Tralee, with her parents Michael and Mary, from an article in the Irish Times.

It's a great bit of stuff altogether - here is a piece of the article "It would be great, journalistically speaking, to report that on the morning after being crowned the 53rd Rose of Tralee, Luxembourg Rose Nicola McEvoy staggered into the media room at the Carlton Hotel in a crumpled hoodie, swigging from a two-litre bottle of Coke. It would also be great, journalistically speaking, to report that the 26-year-old teacher and I then came to blows over who got to have the last Alka-Seltzer, while Dáithí Ó Sé chanted “Fight! Fight!” and a Rosebud wept".

You surely must read the rest, here at the Irish Times.
