Model Caroline crowned Miss University
The race for Miss Universe Ireland is on and UCD student Caroline Shanahan has been crowned Miss University.
The blonde beauty won the title on Sunday evening and will spend the next few months preparing for the overall national contest.
Caroline beat 10 other beauties for the crown at the competition held at Dandelion bar in Stephen's Green, Dublin.
"It's amazing to win, I'm so delighted," Caroline (pictured right) said on the night.
She is no stranger to the catwalk though as she is already signed with Assets modelling agency, who represents the likes of Sarah Morrissey and Nicola Hughes - who is currently appearing on the reality TV show Made in Chelsea.
Previous Miss Universe Ireland winners include Roz Purcell, Lynn Kelly and Lisa Madden.
They have all gone on to carve out successful careers as models. Roz not only has her own suit line but also a successful nutrition brand, Natural Born Feeder.
