On Thursday, August 23, a homecoming will be held for Carlow Rose, Shauna Ray Lacey.
Shauna missed the fact that she was crowned Rose or Tralee in 2018 but made history in the process.
In the 59 years of the festival the "Mother Rose" broke the matrix for future Roses.
The 24-year-old is the mother of her three-year-old daughter, Emmy, who was at the Tralee festival the last few days, along with Emmy's dad and Shauna's partner, John Nolan.
Unmarried mothers were excluded from entry into 2008, so Shauna has written history on her way to the television finals because she was confirmed as the first mother rose ever to make it happen.
Shauna – who stole the hearts of the nation with her candid interview about her parents' drug addiction and how her mother overcame it to be in Emmy's life – will appear on Upper Tullow Street just outside of Salt Bar at 7:30 pm.
Shauna is the daughter of Angela Ray and the late Francis Lacey who died five years ago.
