Sally-Ann’s The Early Favourite On 60th Anniversary Of The Rose Festival

Posted by’s coverage of the Rose of Tralee Festival will be brought to you by AIB Tralee…


Kerry Rose, Sally-Ann Leahy

IT’S early days but the bookies favourite at the moment is one of our own.

According to Paddy Power (on Thursday afternoon), Kerry Rose Sally-Ann Leahy leads the betting at 3/1 and wouldn’t it be great for the Causeway woman to win it on the 60th anniversary of the first festival which took place back in 1959.

Next up is New York’s Elena Evangelou¬†and Chicago’s Shana Pembroke at 6/1 and Mayo’s Nicole Loughlin and Clare’s Victoria O’Connell on 7/1, Kildare’s Emer Fogarty at 8/1, Cork’s Stephanie McCarthy on 10/1, Longford’s Marie Brady on 12/1 and Limerick’s Sinead Flanagan on 14/1.

The rest of the contestants range from 16/1 to 80/1.¬†No doubt we’ll see the betting change quite a bit between now and Tuesday night when the winner is announced.
