Miss Shamrock

2019 Miss Shamrock: Hannah Peter


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.

Hannah is a born and bred red-head with the sassy and sweet attitude to match. She grew up in Anoka,  the Halloween Capitol of the World, and isexcited to represent the St. Patrick’s Day Capitol of  the World as a Shamrock Princess this year. She went to college at North Dakota State in Fargo and after graduation, settled in Hopkins and began her career as a respiratory therapist. In Hannah's spare time, she likes to spend time with her family and friends (including her two kitties), catch up on Grey’s
Anatomy, and drag her very German fiancé to the local Irish pubs for fish and chips, corned beef, and a mug (or two) of beer.

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
