Celbridge girl Therese Lynn was crowned the Kildare GAA Rose at a gala at St Laurences in Narraghmore last Saturday night, March 5.

Therese, a third year Biomedical and Biological Sciences student, wowed the crowd with her rendition of Sandi Thom’s ‘Punkrocker’ as her party piece.

The 20-year-old camogie player, who represented Celbridge GAA, is also a keen cyclist and is training for this month’s 400km student-organised charity cycle to Galway and back.

Ten GAA roses representing clubs from Castledermot, Kilcock, Nurney, Kilmead, Kilcullen, Athy and St Laurences took part in the entertaining gala selection night.

St Laurences’ man, DCU student Eoin Corrigan was selected as the night’s top escort - even though he’d only answered the call from organiser Vincent Gorman that afternoon! Therese will now represent all Kildare GAA clubs at the Kildare Rose final in April.
