Meet Leitrim Rose candidate: Romai McMorrow

Romai McMorrow

My name is Romai Clare McMorrow, I am from Rossinver. My sponsor is Osta W8 Cafe & restaurant in Manorhamilton, who I am extremely grateful to. I am an Irish dancer and have just recently returned from tours in Norway and France. I have two brothers, Emmett & Craig and my mum Clare and dad Pat. Music and dance runs in my family. My older brother Craig is a musician and currently lives in Edinburgh, and my brother Emmett is an Irish dancer also and is currently touring around the world with a professional Irish dance show.

What is the most important issue affecting young people in Irish society today?

Another issue facing young people these days is trying to secure a mortgage. It is becoming increasing more difficult all the time and it is putting a lot of financial stress on younger people.

Why did I want to get involved in the Rose of Tralee?
I’ve always liked watching the Rose of Tralee on the television and never thought it was something I would do. My mum sent me a picture of an online post from Facebook where they were looking for girls to apply so I decided I would go for it!
