Mayo is well represented at Miss Ireland this year with two contenders for the coveted Miss Ireland crown on September 5.

Miss Claremorris is Olivia Barret. She is 21 years old and has just finished her third year of studies at the University of Limerick, currently studying Criminal Justice, and would like to become a Barrister one day.

Miss Mayo is Laura Martin, 25 years of age, who has a degree in design and two in computer science, including her master’s. Laura is originally from Cork but moved to Mayo three years ago to start her career. She is also 25 years old and works as a marketing and design manager. She is a youth mentor in Mayo with Foroige’s Big Brother Big Sister programme in Castlebar, an internationally recognised youth mentoring programme that helps to form supportive friendships for young people and inspire them to brighter futures.

The 18th Century Killua Castle in County Westmeath is the stunning venue for Miss Ireland 2021. The privately owned castle dates back to 1740 and has been lovingly restored to its former glory.

This year the final of Miss Ireland will be a spectacular outdoor show against the magical backdrop of this dreamy castle on September 5, 2021.

Current Miss World, Toni-Ann Singh, has been invited to jet in from Jamaica for the sparkling highly-choreographed show which will feature a dramatic light display and an eclectic mix of music and entertainment as the 30 finalists descend a magnificent outdoor stone staircase to the castle gardens.

Established in 1947, Miss Ireland has been the launchpad for many eminent, successful, and inspiring women in Ireland. In recent years the Miss Ireland Franchise has raised over €250,000 for various charities, including Laura Lynn, Temple Street, Alzheimer’s Ireland, Pieta House, The Cari Foundation and this year, is proud to partner with Variety Ireland, an Irish charity helping sick, disadvantaged and children with special needs since 1951.

The winner of Miss Ireland 2021 will receive a lucrative agency contract and a host of prizes, including jewellery, gowns, a professional photoshoot, beauty and hair products and then go on to represent her country and take part in the 70th Miss World festival, which will take place in the stunning Caribbean Island of Puerto Rico in December this year.

Virtual heats have been running all over the country to find contestants from each county with beauty, poise and personality to take part in the forthcoming Miss Ireland 2021 competition.
