Cave Hill beauty exposed: Mum-of-one Nadine Poole snapped by shocked hikers during naked photoshoot

Sara Girvin reveals Hillsborough woman Nadine Poole was the star of nude photoshoot

This is the sexy mum-of-one who hit the headlines last week after being snapped by hikers during a naked photoshoot at a famous north Belfast beauty spot.

Sunday Life can reveal the mystery woman was Hillsborough woman Nadine Poole, who was spotted by ramblers at Cave Hill who said they “turned away in disgust” after stumbling across the x-rated nude shoot.

But a pal of Nadine told Sunday Life she “can’t believe the fuss” around her photoshoot, which she is said to have described as “artistic”.

The stunning 26-year-old who boasts 34-24-34 statistics is an experienced glamour model and body builder who made it to the Miss Swimsuit USA contest final in Mexico last year.

She has previously flaunted her E-cup assets at racy topless and underwear photoshoots at other Belfast landmarks including Victoria Square and Waterfront Hall.


But now outraged Social Development Minister Nelson McCausland has called for Belfast City Council to investigate Nadine’s latest raunchy shoot, calling it “totally inappropriate and unacceptable behaviour”.

One witness told of how he had been sitting down for a rest at around 2.30pm on Wednesday of last week when he spotted platinum-blonde Nadine posing at one of the distinctive caves.

“I was sitting drinking my juice and eating my Turkish Delight when what caught my eye was this girl with long blonde hair and a bright pink tracksuit and pink shoulder bag,” he said.

“I thought that looks really odd, it’s not the way you would come up Cave Hill. There was a guy behind her, he had a grey

bag with what looked like camera equipment.

“They went on up the path, he appeared to be getting his camera equipment out, then she took her gear off.

“She was posing on a rock and all sorts of poses, glamour sort of stuff.

“I couldn’t see any detail from where I was but it was obvious it wasn’t anything tasteful. She climbed up into the cave at one point, legs splayed out.”

The man said the hikers were so disgusted by the scene that they cut their walk short and turned back, but added that the woman didn’t seem to be in any rush to put her clothes back on.


“I noticed at least three groups of people and a runner, they got half way to the cave, then looked up and walked down again,” he said.

“Even when people were walking up towards them, they didn’t seem in any sort of panic to stop and the girl made no attempt to get her kit back on.

“It was blatantly obvious what was going on.”

Sunday Life contacted Nadine, who comes from a respectable middle class family, but she declined to comment.

She proudly displays her glamour model shots on her Facebook page, as well as sharing them on the Model Mayhem website, where she recently deleted her page.

On the portfolio website used by models and photographers, Nadine describes herself as “a well travelled young woman hoping to further my career in the modelling world”.

She continued: “So far I’ve spent 10 years as a hair model, worked runways, fashion shows and competitions in this area. However I now want to push through into more lingerie/bikini and glamour industry.

“To date I’ve tried anything from fetish shoots to body painting to bridal, with glamour and lingerie thrown in on the side so I’m open to new developments in broadening my career.


“I also do PR work and am willing to travel to host club and theme nights etc.”

Speaking last week, Mr McCausland said: “Cave Hill is a very popular location for walking and many families visit on a regular basis. This is totally inappropriate and unacceptable behaviour for such a location and will have caused offence to many people who will have been in the area.

“I am sure it will be of concern to Belfast City Council and that they will want to make sure that this matter is fully investigated.”

Cave Hill Country Park is owned by Belfast City Council.

A council spokesman said it “did not approve of that sort of behaviour in a public park”, adding: “If anyone provides information on which to base an investigation, we will investigate.”
