Tyrone Rose returns to former school

THE reigning Tyrone Rose has told how she was “honoured” to be able to return to her former primary school in Dungannon, accompanied by the Rose of Tralee, to meet teachers and pupils as part of a special visit to the town.

Stunning Catherine Sherry, who is herself training to be a school teacher, also revealed how she has mixed emotions about handing over her Tyrone Rose sash at the beginning of April after a whirlwind year of public engagements.

The Dungannon girl, a former pupil of St Patrick’s PS, will join her fellow Roses to take part in the St Patrick’s Day Parade along New York’s Fifth Avenue next month in what she describes as a “once in a lifetime opportunity”.
