The Rose of Tralee did the Ice Bucket Challenge in her sash and tiara

In a fountain in Tralee town park, no less.

PHILADELPHIA’S MARIA Walsh was only crowned Rose of Tralee on Tuesday night. She’s hardly got used to her new sash yet.

Nailed it. What a pro.

She also doused Senator Mark Daly in icy water, for good measure.
