The first contestant hoping to follow in the footsteps of the current Rose of Tralee, Jennifer Byrne, is Sandra McCann.
Sandra is 26 years old, and is currently studying accountancy as her second degree. Sandra plays pool and snooker in her spare time and represented Ireland in the European Snooker Championships in Lithuania in 2016.
In her profile Sandra says, "I am currently studying Accountancy and working as an accountant in Dotser Ltd Tullamore. I have previously graduated with a business degree in AIT. I play pool and snooker and have represented Offaly in All Ireland Pool Championships and Ireland in the European Snooker Championships. I am an advocate for Mental Health and Endometriosis and it's my passion to spread awareness. I would like to thank my sponsor The Blueball Pub and to all my family and friends for their support.
