Miss Galway 2015, Tirna Slevin, will compete in the Miss Ireland final, representing Galway city and county, and her official sponsor Coyotes Late Bar & Club.
Throughout her reign as Miss Galway, Tirna has been raising awareness for charity partner Console, the national organisation in Ireland supporting people in suicidal crisis and those bereaved by suicide.
Tirna, a former student of GMIT and represented by The Catwalk Modelling Agency, was crowned Miss Galway in April.
“I would love more than anything to be able to bring the crown home to Galway," she says, "but I am just delighted to be part of such a fantastic event. I appreciate how lucky I am and that it is an amazing opportunity, no matter what the result.”
Although the run up to the big night has been a lot of hard work, Tirna has been enjoying the process.
“I feel nervous but extremely excited about being in the final this week. I have met some friends for life and I have had so much fun with all my preparations, throughout my journey so far I have met some very helpful and kind people.”
The gown she will be wearing for the final is from Harper Boutique in Galway city.
The Miss Ireland final will take place in Crown Plaza Hotel in Dublin tomorrow with the winner going on to represent Ireland in the Miss World competition.
