Each year the Irish Society selects a Rose of Tralee to represent the Club at the annual National Final of the contest. The winner of the NZ title goes on to represent New Zealand at the International Festival in Tralee, Co Kerry, in August of that year.
After being selected as the 2014 Hutt Valley Rose of Tralee, Lisa had some time to mingle with family, friends and members of the Hutt Valley Irish Society.
