Miss Shamrock

2017 Miss Shamrock: Alexandra Murdock


Each year the Association invites Irish women 21-and-over to become Miss Shamrock Princesses. The princesses spend six weeks together selling buttons and spreading the Irish cheer. From these princesses the Association chooses the year's Miss Shamrock. The princesses and Miss Shamrock spend the remainder of the year visiting area parades and festivals as representatives of the association.

If  you can’t find Alex your best bet is to look for the nearest animal because she is probably loving it up! On the farm or at St.Paul Pet Hospital Alex gets to share her passion for animals. Teaching dance to kids at Dance Tech Studios puts the biggest smile on her face. Alex became an ordained minister in hope to bring people together in faith as St.Patrick did with the people of Ireland. Growing up in an Irish Catholic family St.Patrick’s day has always been a big, green hair and all. Now she can’t wait to to celebrate St.Patrick’s day with all her new Irish friends.


Miss Shamrock is chosen by the members of the Association and crowned the week before Saint Patrick's Day. Miss Shamrock is chosen based on her representation of the Association as a Miss Shamrock Princess.

She has the honor of representing the Association in a  variety of parades and cultural festivals throughout the year
