Limerick may not have a Limerick Rose at the finals this year, but there is a Rose at the finals who is from Limerick.
Siobhan O'Reilly has been chosen to be the 2009 Luxembourg Rose.
From the article "The 2009 Luxembourg Rose has been inundated with support from well-wishes. "I'm delighted to have the support of the people of Lisnagry and Ahane. It's such a tight-knit community". The Limerick Leader has much more on this.
