The 2018 Dublin Rose is Tanya Feighery from Tallaght in South Dublin. She graduated from DCU with a BSc honours degree in PE with Biology and will start working this year in Kingswood Community College as a Science and PE teacher.
A recently qualified Zumba instructor, Tanya intends to hold Zumba classes in the school. Dance is one of her biggest passions. In 2008 she represented Ireland in the World Championships of Performing Arts final in L.A. where she won a gold, two silver and a bronze medals. Tanya has lived and worked in Abu Dhabi for two years. When not in the classroom she could be found exploring the Arabian desert, immersing myself in Middle Eastern culture, playing GAA with Na Fianna and soaking up the sun!
Upon returning to Ireland last year she got involved with the DSPCA. Animal welfare is important to Tanya and she volunteers as often as she can, mainly helping out with fundraising events.
“My Dublin Rose journey so far has been incredible, relaxed and enjoyable. It is an honour to represent the capital in Tralee and I look forward to all the exciting events in the run up to the festival.”Tanya Feighery, 2018 Dublin Rose
