Pic: Did you see the Kerry town that was spelled incorrectly on the Rose of Tralee last night?

A deliberate dig by one Kerry town at another or simple human error?

But arguably the bigger story was the Sydney Rose’s mother. Yes, Fiona O’Sullivan (above), originally from Cork was representing the Aussie city  and for some reason that remains unclear to us, her mother was also given a famous sash, this one displaying the name of Kerry town Killarney.

Sadly for Mrs O’Sullivan, the town’s name was misspelled.
