The €600 prize includes phi brows, a complete hair transformation, and a one to one makeup lesson with Aoibheann.
At Easter I dropped off some Easter treats to Donegal Hospice to show my appreciation for the invaluable work they do.
I am so glad to be able to use my Miss Donegal platform as a way to highlight the work all the staff do in the Donegal Hospice and to raise much needed funds for a valued place in our community.
My dream would be Miss Donegal and encourage youths to get involved in the community and to get active in charity work. Actively being part of the community is something you will never regret. We never know when we will need someone so it is great to stick together and join forces and help everyone in times of toughness grief, joy and triumph.
I have always been hard working and love to build on my interpersonal skills. I started working with G&G salon at the young age of 15 and also juggled this with school and my current part time job with Kelly’s Centra, Mountain Top.
I’ve had an unforgettable Miss Donegal Finalist journey so far. I have met the kindest bunch of young ladies I could ever imagine. I want to say a big thank you to my community for helping and supporting me along my journey.
A big thanks to Aoibheann Walsh my sponsor, Mairtin Kelly, Kelly’s Centra for promoting me. Mc Cullaghs jewellers Letterkenny for kindly sponsoring me stunning pieces of jewellery for my finalist video.
This has been an unbelievable experience and I am absolutely delighted to be raising money for charities and giving back to the community. I would love if you could give me a vote which may help me continue my Miss Donegal Journey.
If I win Miss Donegal, I would use the platform to show off picturesque Donegal and to raise awareness for charities in Donegal.
I have always taken part in Charity work from a young age. I dyed my hair pink in 2018 for relay for life Donegal. This was a fun experience as it showed my bubbly and light hearted personality with pink hair while raising vital funds.
I previously volunteered with St. Vincent de Paul in Letterkenny as well as taking part in the annual Daffodil day and action breast cancer day on numerous occasions,’ she concluded. Wishing you the best of luck in the finals Kirsty.
