Tomorrow night, Friday, July 27, the winner of Miss Midlands will be crowned in Karma Athlone.
Contestants will take to the runway modelling three different looks before taking to the stage for an interview with the winning contestant representing the Midlands in the Miss Ireland final later this year.
All of the contestants will attend an interview with the judging panel earlier that evening. Judges include Mady Maher (Catwalk Modelling Agency ), Caroline Downey (Carried Away PR/ TV 3 Stylist ) & local blogger, the Wicked Blonde. Host for the night will be the Galway Player.
The winner of Miss Midlands will automatically receive a contract with Catwalk Modelling Agency and sponsorship from the Debs Room Athlone and Medussa Hair Studio Athlone to assist them with preparations in the run up to Miss Ireland.
Miss Ireland is one of the World’s longest running beauty pageants, established in 1947. It has been the launch pad for many well known successful, empowering women in Ireland. The winner of Miss Ireland represents her country at the prestigious Miss World.
The competition has not only been successful for the overall winners of the coveted crown, but also for finalists who have taken part who credit Miss Ireland in helping building their confidence, self esteem, interview and media skills, all elements which they have gone on to use in their chosen professional careers.
Miss Ireland uses her reign to raise awareness and fundraise for charitable causes under the Beauty with a purpose title which is at the heart of the Miss World organisation. Since its inception, Miss Ireland has raised hundreds of thousands of funds and awareness for various charities with a strong focus on Irish children’s charities.
The competition is not just based on beauty as there are many other tasks in which the successful contestant must compete to win this crown such as her beauty with a purpose work, interview, fashion, sports, talent and social media skills.
Darren King (Athlone ) is the current Mr Ireland. Could we find a Miss Ireland from the area also??
