HAVE you got what it takes to win a major international beauty pageant?

UN Pageants Ireland is seeking both male and female contestants for the Irish final which takes place in October.

People across Limerick will be hoping to follow in the footsteps of Adare girl Samantha Long, who represented Ireland at last November’s ‘World Final’ in the Caribbean - and came away with the world prize.

Unlike other beauty pageants, Miss UN Europe is different, according to the organisers.

They say its purpose is to give all women the opportunity to come together in a pageant setting regardless of their background, in order to build relationships with other women working to have a positive impact on their communities.

The organisers are looking for girls from across the county, aged between 17 and 29 to represent Ireland at the World UN Final this November in the tropical paradise of Jamaica.

Speaking after she won the contest last year, Adare girl Sami said: “I had a brilliant time in Jamaica and was proud of how I did despite being there on my own, so winning was just an absolutely fantastic plus!”

UN Pageants Ireland are also looking for male contestants to enter the competition this year.

Elsewhere, a Corbally student is celebrating being named ‘Miss Limerick’. Jemma Burke won the title on Friday night.
