Carlow Rose

Carlow Rose Shauna Ray Lacey is the one to beat at this year’s Rose of Tralee.

The first ever mother to make it to the live finals of the much-loved pageant blew viewers away with her moving interview last night.

Revealing that both her parents were heroin addicts, Shauna told Daithi O’Se about how she made it her life’s mission to not become her parents, and take a different path.

Shauna’s mother, now a recovering addict, was in the audience supporting her through the live interview.

She then sang a chilling rendition of Aslan’s Crazy World, saying she used to sing it for her father.

Viewers all over the country were quick to support the young mother, saying she deserved to win the crown more than anyone else.
