Sources of news

tdn rose stand
Alana Marshall c/o Taranaki Daily News

This report comes by a very circuitous route. Alana Marshall's (2012 New Zealand Rose and 2012 Taranaki Rose) parents are in Ireland to support Alana. David and Nuala are keeping a Rose diary and will be keeping the Taranaki News Daily up to date.

And then it's here and we all know!

Best of luck to Alana.

I wonder if the name Alana is a corruption of the Irish (Gaelic) phrase a leanbh meaning 'child' or 'baby', but usually 'my baby', said in a loving way.
