Aoife (pronounced as ‘ee-fah’) Hannon, 19, representing Listowel, was crowned Miss Universe Ireland 2011 during the weekend in Dublin. The 5’10” beauty takes over last year’s Rozanna Purcell who had quite a memorable year after making waves in Las Vegas and placing in the Top 10 of Miss Universe 2010.
But the big question is this: will Aoife match or exceed Rozanna’s achievement? The latter is a hard act to follow but nothing is impossible in the oft-crazy and unpredictable world of international beauty competitions.
Aoife has the height and charm. Let’s see how she will transform between now and mid-August when she departs for Sao Paolo, Brazil for Miss Universe 2011.
Good luck, girl! 😉
