RETURNING home to connect with her family roots was an easy decision for the latest Daily News media sales recruit.

After spending time abroad and experiencing different aspects of the industry Alanna O'Halloran has landed in Allora.

"I have just returned home from volunteering in Vietnam for a communication government policy group and am now settling back into the peaceful life," Miss O'Halloran said.

"I grew up in Charleville and Gympie but when Mum and Dad - Bev and Garry O'Halloran - retired they returned to Allora where they grew up and where I am living now.

"Mum's family has been in the area for 100 years and Dad's for about 150 years."

After four years at APN in Hamilton, Brisbane, Miss O'Halloran hoped the more peaceful lifestyle would allow her to focus on her law degree.

"I study part-time at USQ and am halfway through my law degree and hope to finish at the end of next year," she said.

Miss O'Halloran said she liked what she had seen of the district so far.

"Allora is so peaceful and relaxed and everything about Warwick reminds me a lot of Gympie which is nice," she said.
