Roscommon town native, Orla Quinn, was recently crowned ‘Best Dressed Lady’ at a virtual event organised by ‘The Hat House’ in aid of Belfast City Cystic Fibrosis Unit, which was judged by a panel of four leading industry experts.
The 25-year-old, who was crowned Miss Sligo last August, having moved to the town to begin a new career with Bank of Ireland, said she was “over the moon”.
Dressed in a vibrant pink Savida suit, adorned with red accessories and Lulu Guinness clutch bag, Orla’s outfit was crowned with a unique headpiece, which was designed and crafted by Roscommon milliner, Laura Hanlon.
Laura Hanlon’s headpieces have been success at numerous high profile events in recent years and the winning combination of two Roscommon locals proved to be a wonderful advertisement for the town and county.
Next up for Orla is the Miss Ireland Final, which takes place later this summer. As one of the earliest qualifiers, Orla will be hopeful of going on to represent Ireland in the Miss World Finals in Puerto Rico at the end of the year.
As part of her campaign, she has introduced a charity element whereby she has been raising much-needed funds for Crumlin Children’s Hospital by completing a vast array of challenges.
With her roots firmly established in Roscommon town, Orla is looking forward to hosting the grand finale of her fundraising drive in the town with an event to announced in due course.
