Share this article


The Miss Limerick pageant has acted as one of the main events of the city’s summer social calendar for over three decades and this year, for the first time, the show will have a new creative team running the competition. This year also marks the return of the Miss Clare competition for the first time in three years, with the winners both moving forward straight to the Miss Ireland Final.

The Zipyard Limerick and Blue Streak Media will present the Miss Limerick and Miss Clare 2019 final at Opium in 101 Limerick this Thursday the 18th of July.

Event co-organiser Patrick McLoughney said;

“This is the first time in thirty years that Miss Limerick is being run by a different group of people, and we want to bring something different to the table this year. We've eliminated any height requirements and introduced live social media elements, vlogs and we’re filming a mini-documentary about the entire process so everyone can see what goes on behind the scenes. We want this to be the most transparent and inclusive Miss Limerick and Miss Ireland heat that has ever been put on!”

 

Open to girls aged 17 to 24 interested in modelling, the Miss Ireland competition was established in 1947 and is one of the world's longest-running beauty contests. The pageant judges its contestants not only on beauty but also on other important traits such as interview skills, charity work, talent, health and fitness and appropriate social media skills.

The competition aims to build confidence and self-esteem in its contestants and has acted as a launching pad for many successful, empowering Irish women including Holly Carpenter, Aoife Walsh, Sarah Morrissey, Andrea Roche, Amanda Brunker, Michelle Rocca and the 2003 Miss World winner, Rosanna Davison.

The competition has also brought success to many of the pageant’s finalists who have gone on to have huge success in modelling, entertainment, and social media such as Shauna Lindsay, Niamh Cullen, Lauren Guilfoyle, and Niamh De Brun.

Last year’s winner of the Miss Limerick competition was Beibhinn Haren who helped fundraise for LauraLynn Children’s Hospice by holding a coffee afternoon and bucket collection that raised 1,300 euros for the charity.

The event will be hosted by the reigning Miss Clare Lauren Guilfoyle and judged by Influencer Sinead O’Brien, Miss Ireland 2018 Aoife O’Sullivan, Mr Ireland 2018 Wayne Walsh and RSVP magazine showbiz editor Mikie O’Loughlin.

The Miss Limerick and Miss Clare 2019 contest will be taking place at 8pm in Opium Nightclub downstairs in 101 Limerick on Thursday, July 18.
