THE COUNTDOWN is on to one of the most glamorous evenings on the social calendar when a bevy of beautiful ladies will vie for the Miss Limerick crown.

The annual Miss Limerick Ireland World Beauty Pageant 2016 in association with The Holman Lee Agency, Crush 87 Nightclub and Miss Ireland will be held in Crush 87 on Thursday, June 2.

“This is one of the main events on the local social calendar and one of the most glamorous evenings in Limerick,” explained model agent Celia Holman Lee.

“It is a wonderful opportunity for any young woman to get her foot in the modelling or fashion business and, not alone that, but it is also an excellent way to develop your confidence and make new friends and contacts in the business.”

The celebrity judge for the pageant – which was launched on Thursday evening at Crush 87 Nightclub – is top model, lifestyle blogger and Limerick native Madeline Mulqueen, who shot to fame in the Rubberbandits’ Horse Outside video.

The reigning Miss Limerick, Nollaig Malone, and first runner-up, Roisin Cahill, in their recent video interview for the Miss Limerick Facebook page shared their thoughts on entering the pageant. They both agreed that it boosted their confidence and they highly recommend for anyone interested to “just go for it”.

The Hugh Campbell hair group will be making sure that the contestants’ hair is looking its best and Catherine Hickey will work her magic on their make-up. The entertainment on the night will be provided by the resident DJ, and Shall We Dance world class dancers. MC on the night will be Patrick Hogan.

Again this year Miss Limerick Ireland World beauty pageant will be held as a joint venture in association with Miss Ireland. The winners will compete in the final of the Miss Ireland beauty pageant in July in Dublin, for a place in the Miss World competition.

The crowning ceremony of Miss Limerick 2016 and Miss Crush 87 first runner up will take place on Thursday, June 2 at Crush 87 Nightclub, The Granary, Michael St, Limerick at 7.30pm. Tickets, available on the door, are priced at €10.

The winner will walk away with prizes covering all the beauty needs to prepare her for the Miss Ireland final including a dress exclusively designed by Stephen of Bowman Lynch Designs, a tiara by Glitzi Bitz, shoes by Greene’s Shoes, personal training by Breen McLoughlin, hamper by McCabe’s Pharmacy, teeth whitening by Eamonn Noonan Dental Clinic, beautiful crystal by Shaws and many more.
