Could the next Miss or Mr Ireland be from Waterford?

Reigning Miss Ireland Aoife O'Sullivan and MR Ireland Wayne Walsh

People in Waterford are being reminded that applications are now open from men and women aged 17 to 27 years of age for this year's Miss & Mr Ireland competitions.

The events will take place later this year, following on from last year’s hugely successful red-carpet event which was held in Dublin’s Helix Theatre.

23-year-old Aoife O Sullivan from Cork was crowned Miss Ireland 2018 while the Mr Ireland title went to Galway hurler, 27-year-old Wayne Walsh.

Both later represented Ireland at the finals of Miss World and Mr World respectively. 

Brendan Marc Scully, Miss Ireland Boss and Creative Director, says:

“Every year we are more excited than the last as the event becomes bigger and bigger, This year is the 72nd year for Miss Ireland and following on from last year’s successful event adding in our Mr Ireland selection we have a huge production planned for 2019 in the Helix Theatre in Dublin."

To register for one of the upcoming selections simply apply via the website for both titles.
