Ahead of the Rose of Tralee International Festival 2016 [which takes place 17-23 August in Tralee, Co Kerry] we speak to the London Rose Emma Murphy O'Connor.

We talk about her lifelong love of the festival which culminates in the Rose of Tralee competition, her Irish connections and WhatsApp shenanigans that her and the other Roses are already getting up to.
