Annmarie Keegan said: “What a huge surprise to win the SuperValu ladies day at Roscommon tonight. It’s my first time to Roscommon Racecourse and I couldn’t believe the style. To be in the final 10 was fantastic so to win is absolutely amazing. I’ve caught the bug for racing and can’t wait to come back.”
For the fifth year in a row, six SuperValu shops in the region - Fleming's Roscommon; Smith's Monksland; Duffy's Ballaghaderreen; Glancy's Carrick on Shannon; Keane's Lanesboro and Cahill's Castlerea - came together to sponsor the annual ladies day event.

Judge Gretta Peters, founder of ‘Get Glam with Gret’ blog, remarked: “Women from the West should be very proud – their sense of style is unbelievable! The colour and attention to detail shown by all the ladies really stood out for me. I didn’t anticipate how tough the decision would be to pick 10 finalists. I could have easily picked 20. Annmarie’s look was so fresh, colourful and epitomised summer to me; she was a worthy winner of the SuperValu ladies day at Roscommon tonight. Thanks to everyone for such a warm welcome. I had a fantastic night.”
