The search is on for this year's Miss Tipperary

Heats are beginning all over the country to find contestants with beauty, poise and personality to take part in the forthcoming Miss Ireland 2016 event.

Entries are now being taken for the nations hottest beauty search to find the perfect girl to represent her county at the Miss Ireland Final.

Miss Tipperary is being held and organised by a former Miss Tipperary and previous Miss Sunday World winner, Esme Mansergh – Wallace, for the 4th year in a row.

Esme is coming back from the success of picking the overall winner of Miss Ireland 3 years ago, Clonmel girl, Aoife Walsh. “We have had great success with our Miss Tipperary’s, Aoife winning helped launch the competition hugely in its first year. Since then our two winner’s in 2014, Linda Creedon and 2015, Lauren Browne have both reached the final 7. Last year our two runners up also qualified in the semi final so we had all 3 Tipperary girls in Miss Ireland. We were the only county to have all 3 winners in the Final.”

“I am so thrilled to be back running the Miss Tipperary heat this year and am really hoping that we can be as successful as we have been the last three years!”

Esme is running the selection to find the lucky girl who will attend the star studded Miss Ireland Final in August. The Miss Tipperary title is fast becoming one of the most popular titles to win as the last 4 winners, including Esme herself, have been successful in reaching the final knock out rounds of Miss Ireland.

The final of Miss Tipperary will be held in the beautiful Aherlow House Hotel on Saturday May 21st at 8pm. “Aherlow is the perfect venue for an event like this, and I am delighted to welcome the hotel as the main sponsors of this year’s heat.”

“Due to the success of the last few years, there has been huge interest which is fantastic. An agent from Pulse Models in Cork will attend and be scouting for potential models to sign with Pulse. It is a great opportunity for girls who are keen to start a modelling career. A lot of the contestants from last year have gone on to sign with the agency and have had a huge amount of work so it is a great opportunity for all participants, not just the winners.”

Tickets are selling at €12 and can be bought on the door but advanced booking is advised as it is sure to be a sell out event with girls from all over the county vying for the much coveted chance of competing in the final.

There is also an extra bonus as the girls who place 2nd and 3rd in the heat will have the chance to compete in the Miss Ireland semi final. This is the third year that the semi final will be held, and according to Esme “It is a great opportunity to get all 3 Tipperary girls participating in the Miss Ireland final again.”
