Beauty queens on tour!

Current Miss Ireland and qualified doctor, Ivanna McMahon, took a break from her busy schedule to show Miss Northern Ireland, Miss Scotland and Miss England around the country at the weekend.

The four will soon compete against each other for the title of Miss World, which will be held in May in the United Arab Emirates.

The besties took an open top bus tour of Dublin and they visited Emerald Park in Meath last weekend.

They also had afternoon tea at Dublin’s Morrison hotel, had a peek into Trinity College and went to the Irish Whiskey Museum.

The Irish Mirror reports that Clare native, Ivanna said: “Going to the Miss World finals won’t feel lonely as I’ll have my pals with me. I’m really looking forward to it.”

We’re rooting for the Irish beauty queen

Miss Northern Ireland, Daria Gapska said her and the rest of the contestants are focused on the competition and are have so much going on in the run up to it.

She said: “I’d love to win the Miss World crown for Northern Ireland.”

Although the beauty queens are very different, they’re all very excited to be competing in the Miss World competition and all have special reasons why they’d like to win.

Miss England, Jessica Gagen who’s an aerospace engineer said: “I think it’s about time a redhead won Miss World.”

What a line.

A redhead has never won the competition so we can understand she’d want to be the first one.

Jessica said she always gets mistaken for Miss Ireland because of her red hair and the typical Irish, redhead stereotype.

Although, being from Liverpool she probably has Irish blood in her.

We hope Miss Ireland, Ivanna will be crowned Miss World this year. It’ll mark 20 years since Rosanna Davison won the competition in 2003.
