Newry have selected their first ever representative to this year’s Rose of Tralee contest.
Not only will it be a first Newry representative but it also a ‘gender neutral’ person, which means, they are neither male nor female.
The winner is Brian or Brianna Noflaps from Newry, he/she was selected purely on merit of how good they looked, basically this was the best Newry had to offer.
We spoke with Brian/Brianna and he/she told Newry Spud:
“I always knew id represent Newry one day in some capacity, I’m a bit baffled that it is in the Rose of Tralee to be honest but beauty is beauty and I am the best we have at the moment unfortunately, so, I will just do my best.”
