The Search For Miss And Mr Ireland Kicks Off

Preparations are well under way for Miss Ireland 2018 as the team led by Brendan Marc Scully begin to embark on the search across Ireland for the next winner. With this being the 71st Miss Ireland the event has grown to become a key date in the social calendar.


Brendan Marc Scully Miss Ireland Boss & Creative Director says” Every year we are more excited than the last as the event seems to become bigger and bigger each time with and this being the 71st year we feel is going to be a very special one. We have some new additions to the format of the competition which we will be revealing shortly but it will have a modern twist that I think reflects the changing nature of Ireland and Irish women in particular. Every year we find someone that is a little bit different from the last which reflects the nature of the competition. We are really looking forward to meeting the hopeful contestants and making someone’s dreams come true”


Things will being to warm up with upcoming heats in  Carlow, Derry, Dublin, Galway, Limerick , Tipperary  announced plus more to follow between now and the end of June and we expect this year to be tougher than ever with enquiries already coming in from aspiring models and influencers waiting their piece of the Miss and MR Ireland fame.


The 32 aspiring Miss Irelands will take to the stage this September in ‘Dublin’s Crowne Plaza Hotel’ at Northwood. Only one can take the coveted the crown – the winner will then go on to represent the country in a once in a life time experience at the final of Miss World. Not only this Miss Ireland 2018 will receive a lucrative modelling contract and a host of prizes including, a professional photo shoot giving her all the tools she needs to follow in the footsteps of the likes of Rosanna Davidson, Aoife Walsh or Sarah Morrissey just some of the Irish winners that have gone before her.


In addition to Miss Ireland this year will see entries reopen for males wishing to apply for the MR Ireland.  The title of MR Ireland is open to males aged 18-28 who feel they have what it takes to take over the title from current MR Ireland Darren King. Darren has gone on to become of Ireland’s Top male models having won the title in 2016.

Darren King says “Since winning the title of MR Ireland my career as a model has excelled having work on many big campaigns here in Ireland in addition to the great experience of representing my country at MR World”
