Introducing Laois Rose 2018 entrant, farmer Grainne Hogan

Laois Rose 2018 Grainne Hogan shines on the Rose tour.

The betting odds have been released for the 2018 Rose of Tralee festival due to be televised next week.

Roses from across the world are vying for the crown currently held by Offaly's Jennifer Byrne, but London and Melbourne are currently leading the way with speculators. 

The 2018 Laois Rose Grainne Hogan is priced at 50/1 to take on the title of the Rose of Tralee, they obviously haven't seen her milk a cow on stage like she did at the Laois Rose selection night! 

WATCH: Laois Rose Grainne Hogan has a special message as she heads to Tralee.

Grainne is shining with some brilliant pictures emerging while she is flying the flag for Laois on the Rose tour this week and the Camross farmer is doing her county proud. 

The early favourite this year is Grainne Hawkes representing London, followed closely by Melbourne Rose Suzie Jackson. The TV element of the Rose of Tralee takes place next Monday and Tuesday on RTE One.
