Video: Miss Northern Ireland hopefuls gear up for competition final

By Staff Reporter

The competition as well as the sun was hotting up yesterday for the 24 finalists in the Insanity Tan Miss Northern Ireland competition this year.

Many of the finalists are currently sitting school and university exams amid the build-up and preparations ahead of the grand final at the Europa Hotel in Belfast on Monday evening.

But they were able to make time for some fun at the beach at Helen's Bay yesterday to enjoy this week's mini heatwave.

Heat winners were selected at competitions held across Northern Ireland, from Dungannon to Bangor this year.

But only one of these young women will triumph next Monday to take over the title from Anna Henry.

Part of the extensive prize package includes an all expenses paid trip to the Miss World Competition which will take place in Sanya, China, on December 8.
