Niall's girl Aisling joins her mum at new agency

Niall Quinn's gorgeous daughter Aisling Quinn has scored herself a contract with Andrea Roche's model agency.

As these stunning Diary pics reveal, the stunning teenager (18) is the latest big-name signing to jump ship and sign up with the former Miss Ireland's company.

And she's being joined by her equally gorgeous mum Gillian Quinn.

Both mother and daughter used to be on the books of 1st Options agency before making the move to the newly-wed Andrea's agency.

Andrea has predicted a bright future for the leggy daughter of the former Sunderland chairman, who has posed for some sultry new shots for her portfolio.

She had been studying for her Leaving Cert but now that her exams are over, she has been able to turn her attention to modelling.

"She's the perfect age to start off, she has just turned 18 and she recently did shots with Barry McCall, who was just blown away by her and was really impressed," she said.

"She's got her mother's gorgeous looks and her father's height -- she's 5'10" tall -- so it's the perfect combination.

"I have just signed up herself and her mum and even though it's early days, I've already had loads of inquiries about them so I think they're going to do really well."

The pair are now on the same books as a string of our top models including Georgia Salpa and Pippa O'Connor.

No strangers to turning on the smiles for the cameras, the glamorous mother-and-daughter duo have joined forces for a number of high profile events in the past.

The keen racing fans have also helped judge a number of Best Dressed Lady events around the country.

Aisling had been scouted by leading agencies in London and Paris after making her debut several years ago but was too young at the time to model full-time. She first followed in the footsteps of her mum at 15, when she did her first catwalk show.

And she has been steadily building up her modelling portfolio since.

Aisling has been gradually becoming a familiar face on the social scene too.

Last year, she was gobsmacked after being nominated for the Most Stylish Newcomer award in the VIP Awards.

Her well-known mum has been modelling for years and made a step into the world of TV in recent years, working for Kildare TV.

She also took part in last year's Celebrity Bainisteoir when she mentored Ballyporeen GAA club in Tipperary.

A qualified pilates teacher, the sister of PR queen Valerie Roe always looks immaculate and has obviously passed on her keen sense of style to her daughter.

Along with her mother Margaret, she and Aisling were previously the faces of Newbridge's Whitewater Shopping Centre.
