This is Gemma McNabb who was Miss Ireland 1967. Dressed in early [Thomas] Wolfangel [Irish designer] (top) and above with Miss UK in Trafalgar Square, London. Note that clothes actually fit properly (as opposed to cling or billow), and that the accessories do not look like they’re going to eat the wearer. Those was the days.
Máire Hughes from Knocknacarra in Galway won the [Miss Ireland] title just days ago representing Mayo.However it is now believed that organisers have told her she will have to step down as she will be over the age limit by the time she travels to the Miss World competition.
