2014 Rose of Tralee Maria WalshThe 2014 Rose of Tralee has said that the Sydney Rose had every right to speak about the Eighth Amendment during the televised event.

According to the Sunday Business Post Maria Walsh says Briana Parkins should be put on a pedestal to change the perceptions of the Rose of Tralee festival.

Ms Walsh added that given the Sydney Rose’s background in journalism she had a right to give her views on the Eighth Amendment of the Constitution which relates to the right of the unborn and should not be ridiculed.

Walsh went on to say that people assume that the contestants are twee and that its only two nights on TV but that they are very much able to offer their opinion, and that’s what Ms Parkins did.
