Rose of Tralee winner

We recieved pictures of the winner of the 2006 Washington Rose of Tralee in our sash yesterday. Isn’t she lovely?


We met the four contestants at the Irish Embassy last week and they were all so wonderful. But I have to admit, that this young woman, Carolyn Kirwin, was the most self-posessed, poised, and unselfconsciously articulate woman of ANY age that I have met in a very long time. She was particularly striking. I am sorry I could not go to the competition itself…I am sure it was great fun to see them all perform. Congratulations, Carolyn!
