The winner of the 2014 Rose of Tralee has been announced.
It’s Maria Walsh – the Philadelphia Rose.
The winner was announced live on TV in The Dome, Tralee last night.
There can be only one winner, and there are no runners up so Corks Rose Anna Geary went home empty handed.
even though she was in the top 4 out of 32 at the bookmakers.
Cork has had only two roses in recent years
- 1999 was Geraldine O’Grady
- 1991 was Denise Murphy
We spoke with Denise Murphy last night after the bad news for Cork
