Sharon's surprise at news of Sexiest Woman poll win
In typically modest fashion, Sharon Ni Bheolain laughs in surprise at being told that she is officially Ireland's Sexiest Woman, as voted by readers of the Sunday Independent.
"Genuinely, I am embarrassed. The whole thing is awkward for me. I am a leggings and Ugg boots kind of girl," says the 38-year-old newsreader.
"Given that it is a readers' poll, anyone who took the time to vote for me -- I am very flattered and grateful that they did," she adds.
Ni Bheolain, who has been working as co-anchor on the RTE Six-One News since 2005 and who is a fluent Irish speaker, saw off strong competition from other well-known beauties such as Miriam O'Callaghan, Andrea Roche and Grainne Seoige.
