Nicole looks to be Mayo's latest Rose to bloom

Fri, Aug 16, 2019

It's going to be a very special week for the Loughlin family from Shrule.

Twenty-two-year-old Nicole Loughlin who will represent Mayo in the International Rose of Tralee Festival this week is looking to become the second Shrule native to win the competition - half-a-decade after the win Maria Walsh. The event will also mark another very special occasion for the NUIG graduate as her parents, Kieran and Kathleen, will celebrate their silver wedding anniversary in the middle of the festival.

The 2019 Rose of Tralee Festival kicks off on Monday, August 19 and runs all the way through to August 27. Loughlin is the third of nine children in the family ranging in age from five to 25-years-old.
