Miss Ireland is a national beauty pageant held in Ireland each year, to celebrate the country's most beautiful women. Winners of the contest represent Ireland at the Miss World pageant. Other winners, including Roberta Brown and Siobhan McClaffey have also been delegates at rival international pageant Miss Universe. The pageant produced a future Miss World, Rosanna Davison in 2003. Other notable winners include newspaper columnist Amanda Brunker and artist Nuala Holloway. The current title holder is Aoife Walsh.

  •      Declared as Winner
  •      Ended as runner-up
  •      Ended as one of the finalists or semifinalists

The winner of Miss Ireland represents her country at Miss Universe or Miss World. Since 2002 Miss Ireland lost the franchise of Miss Universe so officially the winner will be competing at the Miss World. On occasion, when the winner does not qualify (due to age) for either contest, a runner-up is sent.
