Up Past Queens Queen Selection

2019 Queen

Jamie McCarthy

II am originally from Des Moines and after finishing my English degree at the College of Saint Benedict, I'm excited to be back home. While in school I worked as a kindergarten literacy aide, a student campus minister and coordinated service events for students and staff. I also studied abroad in Galway for 4 months. The Friendly Sons have always been the standard of community involvement to me by showing a commitment to genuine service to others. I'm thrilled to be part of a group focused on helping others, along with celebrating my Irish traditions. My family is originally from just outside Knock, in County Mayo and way back my ancestors built Cormac's chapel in Cashel and the Blarney Castle. I currently work in Des Moines at ARAG Legal Insurance and in my free time I like to meet new people, spend time with family and friends, dance, read and dream about Ireland.

 Queen's presence is requested at ALL Friendly Sons of St. Patrick events held throughout the year.

The St. Patrick's Day Parade, St. Patrick's 5K / 10K Run, Irish Open disc golf, Leprechaun Golf Open, and Halfway to St. Patrick's Day Celebration & Bike Ride
