It is the first time in 9 years that the title has been won by a queen from the Royal County

Aoife Scanlon - a 25-year-old marketing executive and member of Enfield Macra na Feirme – was crowned the 2019 Blue Jean Country Queen over the weekend.

She was awarded the top prize of €1,000 from Athboy Credit Union at the festival which took place on Sunday (June 2nd) in Athboy, Co. Meath.

It is the first time in 9 years that the title has been won by a queen from the Royal County and only the third time Meath has produced the winner in 32 years, according to organisers.

It was a clean sweep for Leinster with runner-ups up from Carlow and Kilkenny - Emear Byrne from Carlow received the second prize of €500 from M&G Groundworks, while third place went to Kilkenny’s Amy Rose-Holden who received €250 from Hi-Spec Construction.

Throughout the weekend, Aoife and her 21 fellow queens took part in a fun-filled weekend which involved on-stage interviews, a fashion show, a BBQ, fancy dress football and karaoke.

“Live every minute of it”

Speaking afterwards, Aoife thanked both the organising committee and her fellow queens, adding: “The experience of being a Queen was amazing” and advised any future contestants to “live every minute of it”.

She also expressed her wish to be a positive representative for both The Blue Jean Country Queen Festival and Macra na Feirme over the next 12 months.
