This Year’s Favourite to Win the Rose of Tralee Revealed – And She’s STUNNING!
The gúnas have been ironed, the party pieces have been practiced and the Dome is ready to go!
It’s that time of the year again, when the little town of Tralee becomes the place to be if you’re looking of the craic in Ireland.
65 Roses have assembled from all over the world, and it’s almost time to pick a winner.
As always, this year the bookies have their favourite as to who they think should be crowned The Rose of Tralee 2016.
According to Paddy Power, the lady who’s currently in the lead to take the title is Kilkenny Rose, Sarah Kearns:
The 25-year-old worked as a Primary Teacher for three years in a DEIS school in Cork.
She’s now pursuing a Professional Doctorate in Educational Psychology through UCD.
Growing up in Kilkenny, and a house full of boys, playing GAA/camogie was almost inevitable and she has collected two Leinster medals and one All-Ireland medal for Kilkenny. Her interests also include horse-riding, Irish-dancing, white collar boxing and badminton, in which she also represented Kilkenny.
She’s also a keen musician and has taught piano and theory of music to young children and also finds time to home-tutor children with special educational needs.
Sarah is currently the hot favourite with 7/2 odds in Paddy Power’s, but she’s followed closely behind by Galway Rose, Rosie Burke (6/1), and Cork Rose, Denise Collins (13/1).
Very best of luck to all the girls competing in Tralee this weekend from all of us here in RSVP!
