OVER 890,00 VIEWERS tuned in to watch Luxembourg representative Nicola McEvoy as she was crowned this year’s Rose of Tralee.

The latest figures from RTÉ show that last night’s broadcast had an average of 688,500 viewers, and that the audience level  peaked for the moment when presenter Daithí Ó Sé named the Luxembourg Rose as the winner.

Last night’s programme was the second of two live broadcasts from the Rose of Tralee festival in Co Kerry.

The event was streamed live and was made available on demand on the RTÉ Player. A quarter of the 80,000 streams of the event downloaded online were from the live online broadcast on both nights. Almost half of the streams were ordered from outside Ireland.

RTÉ executive producer for entertainment Justin Healy commended Dáithí Ó Sé for making the event “much easier for the Roses” with his “energetic and fun personality”.
