Video: Sister and cousin of Berkeley balcony victims on taking part in Rose of Tralee

A young woman who lost her sister and cousin in the Berkeley balcony collapse hopes to "make them proud" when she takes to the stage at this year's 58th Rose of Tralee Festival.

San Francisco Rose Amanda Donohoe (19) lost her sister Ashley and her cousin Olivia Burke on June 16, 2015, when the fourth-floor balcony of a rented apartment collapsed.

Students Eimear Walsh, Lorcan Miller, Niccolai Schuster and Eoghan Culligan were also killed in the tragedy.

Physics student Ms Donohoe said both she and her sister dreamt of taking part in the festival since they were children.

She said she grew up watching the Rose of Tralee with their grandmother.
