Twitter goes nuts as one hopeful Rose implies Ireland is part of the UK
She may have ruined her chances with that one...
It appears geography is not the Western Canadian Rose's special talent.
Sinead McGahern may have burned a few bridges with the Irish public after she implied Ireland was part of the United Kingdom.
Explaining to Daitií Ó Se how many relations she had over this side of the Atlantic, she said: "23 first cousins in the UK. Three are currently in England and the other twenty here are in Ireland."
Twitter users were quick to correct her, of course.
#RoseOfTralee Dáithí greets the Texas rose by asking "you've been to Ireland? You know how it works?". Trying to avoid another Canada/UK.— Johnathan Randall (@MrJRan) August 22, 2017
Canada might aswell be a state in the USA if this rose thinks that Ireland is part of the UK #RoseOfTralee— Orlaith McAndrew (@mcorly_21) August 22, 2017
She may struggle to live that one down for a while.
