Former Miss Ireland Sinead Noonan says goodbye to pals as she gets ready for Dubai move
She's been a favourite on the Irish modelling scene for years - now Sinead Noonan is looking towards sunnier climates as she prepares to move to Dubai.
The former Miss Ireland is busy packing her bags before she jets off to the exotic city next week, but not before one last hurrah with some of her nearest and dearest Irish model pals.
Meath native Sinead, who has been one of the top models on the Irish modelling circuit since she was crowned Miss Ireland in 2008, joined a host of fellow Andrea Roche Agency beauties on Saturday night for farewell drinks in celeb hotspot 37 Dawson Street.
Aoife Walsh, Kerri Nicole Blanc, Sarah McGovern, Faith Barnett and Ursula Kelly all turned out to wish Sinead well on her travels.
Redhead stunner Aoife posted a picture of her and her model pal, and wrote: "Saying goodbye to this one last night. Absolutely love you to bits and gonna miss our laughs and random conversations! So excited for your new adventure."
Model mums Kerri Nicole and Sarah also used Instagram to say farewell.
Blonde beauty Kerri said, "Saying goodbye to an amazing friend", while Sarah said, "Gonna miss this gal".
Earlier this year it was revealed that the 27-year-old is dating South African rugby star Maks Van Dyk.
The striking brunette met the sports star (23) when he was on a two-month loan deal to Leinster late last year.
However, Maks has since moved back to his home country where he plays as a prop for the Central Cheetahs. The pair are still loved-up as they maintain a long-distance relationship, with Sinead jetting over to visit her beau in March and February.
The Dunboyne beauty is also a qualified beauty and skin specialist and recently told the Diary that she wouldn't rule out opening her own clinic one day.
"I think it's really important to have another skill because I probably won't be still modelling when I'm 90," she said. "Beauty isn't something that's a million miles away from what I'm doing now anyway."
