Limerick Rose now favourite to win the Rose of Tralee


LIMERICK Rose Sinéad Flanagan is now favourite with the bookies to win the Rose of Tralee.

The Adare native jumped from 20/1 to evens in the bookmakers ahead of her appearance on stage.

Lawrence Lyons, spokesperson for BoyleSports said: “Limerick’s Sinéad Flanagan will grace the stage later with the burden of being favourite after she was heavily backed into Evens from 20/1 to be crowned the winner.”

She recently spoke to the Limerick Post Show all about entering the Limerick Rose selection where she managed to beat off 25 women to take the title.

Sinéad isn’t the only Limerick lady involved in the International festival as Melbourne Rose Jordan Balfry, who is originally from Caherconlish, took to the stage last night.
