A Falcarragh teenager who competed in the 'Little Miss Mary' in 2006 will take to the catwalk in the Miss Universe Ireland final heat in the Mansion House in Dublin this evening.
Speaking to the Donegal Democrat from the rehearsals in Dublin, Falcarragh native, Roisin Gallagher, said the atmosphere was 'amazing.'
The event will be televised by Netflix.

Yesterday morning, all the ladies were rehearsing ahead of the major event tonight.
“We were at rehersals today and we were practising the walk. I am really excited. I would really love to go down the road of modeling,” she said.
Roisin will be wearing a dress sponsored by Pure this evening. She said: “It is fabulous. I am very happy with it.”
