Jessica Lesser at ROT Regionals

Denver Rose Jessica Lesser traveled to Ireland to participate in the
2013 Rose of Tralee Regional Finals May 29-June 2.
By all accounts she was a fantastic representative for the greater Denver Irish Community.
Big applause also goes out to the folks at the Denver Rose Center and all the friends and
family who supported Jessica’s effort that made us proud!

Irelands Tanaiste and Minister for Foreign Affairs Eamon Gilmore has described the Rose of Tralee as one of the great Festivals of Ireland that mobilizes the entire Irish Diaspora around the world.
Gilmore officially welcomed Jessica and the other 60 Roses from all over the world to the Rose of Tralee Regional Festival which took place in Portlaoise, Co Laois.
The Tanaiste says each Rose plays a key ambassadorial role in promoting Irish tourism to a worldwide audience.

The Rose of Tralee International Festival is one of Ireland’s largest and longest running festivals. It is based around the selection of the Rose of Tralee, an international event that encompasses young women of Irish descent from Ireland and around the world.

Jessica returns to Colorado as the reigning 2013 Denver St. Patrick’s Parade Queen Colleen to work in the Irish Community.
