Siobhan went racing to Roscommon's Ladies Day in 2017 for the first time with her 14 friends, all from Strokestown, and had such a great night that they put the 2018 SuperValu Ladies Day date in their diaries. 

Speaking at Roscommon Racecourse on Monday evening, Siobhan said "I am absolutely delighted to win the SuperValu Ladies Day at Roscommon- never in my wildest dreams did I think I would win. My 14 friends and I came last year and had such a great night, we had to come back this year. It's definitely going to be an annual event for us."

There is always a real sense of community which is an important part of the SuperValu ethos and it is lovely to see so many local people attending this annual event. Congratulations to the winner, local lady Siobhan Hanley and to all the finalists.
