The newly crowned Rose of Tralee, Offaly Rose Jennifer Byrne, has thanked everyone for their support and sent a special message to Granny Byrne in Athlone.
Jennifer was speaking shortly after being crowned in a video posted on the Rose Of Tralee's Facebok Page.
She said she was 'over the moon' and 'really excited' to have won.
It is a life changing experience for the Galway based doctor who will undoubtedly be a great ambassador for the Rose of Tralee and for the county of Offaly. She has certainly done us all proud this week.
