Wexford’s Brónagh Hogan sings ‘Red is the Rose’ at Rose of Tralee Festival

The Wexford Rose certainly did the county proud last night…

Brónagh Hogan was Wexford’s representative at the annual Rose of Tralee festival.

During her time on stage with host Daithí O’Sé, Brónagh spoke passionately about her primary school teaching job at Kilrane National School and about how the school has become a “sanctuary” in recent years.

Following this, she sang a rendition of ‘Red is the Rose’. She sang the song in memory of her friend, Gavan Walsh, who had passed away seven years ago.

Watch the full clip of Brónagh singing below:

The Rose of Tralee Festival continues on our screens tonight, starting at 8pm on RTE One.

We recently caught up with Brónagh before the Festival. Read the interview with the Wexford Rose here.
