The next contestant hoping to follow in the footsteps of the current Rose of Tralee, Jennifer Byrne, is Sinead Rigney.

Sinead is a 22 year old primary school teacher from Geashill. She plays football with Naomh Molaise, and rugby with Tullamore. 

In her profile Sinead says, " I’m currently teaching junior infants and I love every minute of it, every day is different and brings different adventures and challenges. Mysponsor is the Tullamore Harriers who I have ran with since I was 12 and to whom I thank for their ongoing support for encouraging me to keep running. I love running 10ks or half marathons, but am looking forward to training for the Dublin marathon in the coming months. I also play football with Naomh Molaise and rugby with Tullamore. During the summer I play tag rugby and spend most of my days farming on the family farm. I love reading, preferably historical fiction and most days I’d choose reading over watching a movie! I’m really looking forward to this year’s Offaly Rose of Tralee as I see it as a chance to meet new people and experience something different."

Sinead is sponsored by Tullamore Harriers.
