I was extremely privileged to join Hazel McMahon, Lauren Guilfoyle and Nicola O’Neill on the judging panel for the final of the Miss Clare Pageant 2015 in the Queens Nightclub Ennis.
After a long day of interviews, hair, make-up, runway prep and pre-judging, we whittled the 14 girls down to a final 5.
It was Lorraine McInerney, Elaine Galvin, Naoise McCormac, Lorraine Tubridy and Ailbhe Murray who impressed us the most.
After the we got the chance to ask the finalists one last question we were handed the impossible task of crowning the overall winner and it in end the judges unanimously decided that it would Elaine Galvin that would represent Clare at the Miss Ireland pageant in July.
1st Runner Up: Ailbhe Murray
2nd Runner Up: Lorraine Tubridy
