LIMERICK has a former Mr World and a Mr Ireland to its fame, but it appears that Limerick men have been very shy to put themselves forward for the Mr Limerick 2014 title.
The search for the next Miss Limerick is well established, but model agent and organiser of this event, Celia Holman Lee, has expressed surprise that just two men are putting themselves forward to contest the title of Mr Limerick.
Four men originally signed up, but two got cold feet and withdrew their names, while 22 females have signed up to take the crown from last year’s Miss Limerick Shauna Lindsay.
The only proviso for entry is that all entrants must have an Irish passport, and she added that previous restrictions on height have also been lifted.
Last year’s hugely successful Miss Ireland, Aoife Walsh, from Tipperary, will be in Limerick next Tuesday night, May 20, when both winners will be announced in Crush 87 Nightclub at 8pm.
The winners will compete in the final of Miss Ireland beauty Pageant for Miss World in the final in July in Dublin.
Tickets will be available on the door and are priced at €10.
The winner will walk away with prizes covering all their beauty needs to prepare her for the Miss Ireland final including a dress exclusively designed by Caroline Mitchell.
