Miss Donegal and Miss Letterkenny are both celebrating victories after the Miss Ireland 2019 pageant final on Saturday.

The Donegal women missed out on the overall title, but they all made great personal acheivements and friends on an unforgettable journey this summer.

Miss Louth Chelsea Farrell was crowned the overall winner at a glamorous ceremony in The Helix in Dublin.

Miss Donegal Holly Mc Crea was named as Queen of Social Media after her creative campaign during the summer.

And Miss Letterkenny Anna Gallagher earned the title of Miss Top Model – in the same week that she graduated with an Arts degree from Maynooth!

Also representing Donegal and Kildare was Naomi Molloy. The Glenties woman now works in Celbridge and was flying the flag for two counties on the day.


The Miss Ireland competition saw 33 young women competing for the crown and the chance to represent the country in the Miss World finals in December. This year’s judges were singer and former Dancing with the Stars winner Jake Carter, international stylist Sonja Molich and former Miss Ireland Rebecca Maguire.
