Sarah McCrave, from Willow Grove, was crowned as the new Louth Rose of Tralee at the Louth Rose finals which took place in the Fairways Hotel on Sunday night, May 5, writes Ami Connolly.
There was a great buzz in the hotel on the night and former Louth Rose Patricia Marmion, from Cooley was delighted to see the crown go to such a worthy contestant.
A total of 14 contestants from around the county took to the stage to try and impress the judges and it was a very difficult task to choose just one.
In the end Dundalk girl Sarah was the one who stood out and she will go on to represent the wee county in the prestigious Rose of Tralee regional finals which will take place in June.
The Dundalk Democrat would like to wish Sarah the very best of luck in her new role.
