Here's what happened when we interviewed the Rose of Tralee entirely in emoji

Things got emojional.

THE ROSE OF TRALEE festival is currently in full swing down in Kerry. Tonight, we’ll meet the first batch of hopefuls in the competition to win the coveted title of Rose of Tralee.

But first, we took some time with current Rose Maria Walsh–out of her busy schedule of treking 242k to Tralee and skydiving into the festival’s airshow–to ask her a few questions. The only catch? She can only reply with emoji. Standard.

Here’s how it went.

How’s the festival treating her then?

arot1

Tired, but in good form, we’d guess.

So what are we all missing down in Tralee?

aot2

By the looks of things, a lot of partying, love, alcohol, and general craic. Not jealous at all…

But what emoji sums up the life of a Rose of Tralee?

aot3

Of course. A heart.

But how would she describe the MC of lovely girls, Daithi?

aot4

Oh she’s pulled out the HEART EYES EMOJI. One we can all agree on.

How about the skills of fellow dance competitor George Hook?

aot5

Crying laughing, make it end. Yep seems about right.

She’ll have to hand over her crown tomorrow night, so how is she going to use the downtime?

aot7

Looks like relaxation, nature, and a lot of chilling in Ireland is on the cards.

How did the first openly gay Rose feel about the result of the marriage referendum?

aot6

Love is love, a clear message.

Hey, there must be some downsides here

aot8

What to take from this? Walking around in heels and fancy frocks all day can begin to grate. We’ve all been there.

So how would she sum herself up, in emoji form?

aot9

OK technically that’s two, but we’ll let it slide.
