The Mayor of the City and County of Limerick, Cllr Stephen Keary is congratulating the Limerick Rose Kayleigh Maher on being chosen to go through to the live TV stage of the Rose of Tralee competition.

The 24-year-old secondary school teacher from Kilcornan was one of 16 finalists announced at an event in The Dome last night, hosted by Marty Morrissey.

Mayor Stephen Keary said: “I’m delighted that Kayleigh has been chosen as one of the finalists for the TV phase of the competition. I’ve met Kayleigh and she is a wonderful role model for all people from Limerick. She is and will do Limerick proud.”

“Kayleigh’s success in being selected for the final ends a ten-year wait for the Limerick Rose entrant. This is the first year since 2007 that the Limerick Rose will be seen on the stage in the Dome during the televised section.”

“She has the support of the entire city and county of Limerick and especially her home parish of Kilcornan. We are all behind Kayleigh and look forward to seeing her on the television next week.”
