Waterford Rose Does Us Proud
Well done to Waterford Rose entry in this years Rose of Tralee, Kirsten Mate Maher played a blinder on stage last night in what is now one of the most famous competitions in the world.
In a brilliant interview Kirsten talked about how important that we embrace diversity and how we should all see each other for who we are and not the colour of our skin or our religion.
As Kirsten says “There’s different types of people everywhere and I suppose that I represent all those people.”
Have a listen to Kirsten’s beautiful voice as she sings “Feeling Good” last night.
