LIMERICK’S new Rose of Tralee is 27-year old doctor Sinead Flanagan, who was selected at a “sold-out” event on Monday evening.
Sinead, from Adare and formerly of Mungret, was chosen to represent the county at the 2019 Limerick Rose Selection at Fitzgerald’s Woodlands House Hotel in Adare on Monday.
With the new format for the 2019 Rose of Tralee International Festival, Sinead is guaranteed to be on stage with Daithi O’Se Live on RTÉ Television this August.
“All the Rose entrants were of extremely high calibre and Sinead will make a superb ambassador for Limerick as the 2019 Limerick Rose,” said Conor Walsh, coordinator of the Limerick Rose Centre.
“We look forward to seeing her take the stage in the Dome this August and supporting her on her incredible journey ahead.”
“A sold-out crowd delivered an amazing atmosphere at the Woodlands House Hotel. We are absolutely thrilled with the success of this year’s event,” Mr Walsh added.
Sinead, who works in Cork University Hospital, is a past pupil of Crescent College.
She is the daughter of Pádraig Flanagan, the principal of Castletroy College.
