Rose of Tralee celebrates it's 60th  International Festival 2019

Hello! My name is Kathleen Zuk and I am proud of my Irish roots, which hail from Carrickmacross, Co. Monaghan, on my maternal side. I am 28 years old and originally from Montreal. In 2015 I graduated from Concordia University with a Bachelor of Commerce; Finance Major and International Business Minor.&l;/p&g; &l;p&g;I am currently pursuing my career at Export Development Canada in Finance Operations. I feel privileged to work for a company with strong female leadership (our current CEO is from Northern Ireland!), who continues to support Canadian businesses, and female entrepreneurs.&l;/p&g; &l;p&g;I love to travel and have been lucky enough to have visited 30 countries. I have always been very involved in sport and took dance lessons for many years. Since being introduced to Gaelic Football in 2012, it has become a big part of my life. I started off playing with the Montreal Shamrocks, joined the Liverpool Wolfetones while living in England, and currently play on an almost entirely Canadian born team in Ottawa. Every day, I am inspired by the strength of the women I play with as well as our coach, who are all leaders both on and off the pitch. I’m very much looking forward to being part of the festival and this incredible community of women!
