Kirsten is the third Waterford Rose to be crowned the Rose of Tralee, with Orla Burke winning in 1977 and Brenda Hyland who won in 1983. The 21 year old winning Rose works in a boutique in Waterford, sings with the Island of Ireland Peace Choir and also plays hockey with Waterford Ladies’ first team.
The new Kia Ceed arrived in Ireland in August. It’s available with petrol and diesel engines, priced from €22,695.
