Goodbye Nick, hello Nikita on catwalk

By David tucker

Wexford-based Rugby legend turned auctioneer Nick Popplewell will take to the catwalk as 'Nikita' this coming weekend in a fundraiser for his local GAA Club, St Fintans.

The 'Rose of St Fintans' will be contested in the Best Western Danby Lodge Hotel this Saturday night (November 14).

Election-style posters have appeared in the villages of Killinick, Ballymore and Mayglass over the past week with eight local men plying their neighbours and parishioners for their support.

The Grand Finale night will consist of each 'Rose' presenting themselves in an evening wear outfit aswell as a swimwear ensemble. Each 'Rose' will also present the audience with their own unique talent.

Rugby legend Nick Popplewell will become 'Nikita', the Ferney Hill Rose for the night and when asked about his preparations said his pageant outfit could well traumatise even the most hardened scrum half and fly half stars of the Rugby World. Tickets for the night at €10 each are on sale in Kielys Centra Killinick.
