Congratulations to Mary Hickey, teacher at Presentation NS Millstreet, who was last night selected as the Kerry Rose for this year’s Rose of Tralee. From Rathmore, Mary graduated from Trinity College with an honours degree and a Vere Foster Medal in 2010. This September, Mary will undertake a Masters in Education. She is a leader with the Social Action Group, and volunteers with Barretstown Camp for children with serious illnesses. She was recently awarded the Gold Gaisce President’s Award (see Seán Radley’s article). From Sliabh Luachra, Mary has a keen interest in music, playing the concertina. Mary is a member of the Marian Players Pantomime Group and the Glen Theatre. She was sponsored last night by the O’Donoghue Ring Hotels.
