The 23-year-old model and sales associate with Brown Thomas from Cork took home the title at Thursday night's newly revamped Miss Universe Ireland pageant, taking the crown from Joanna Cooper, who was given the title in 2015.

Ireland wasn't represented in the 2016 Miss Universe pageant which was held in the Philippines, but it's new franchise owner Brittany Mason, has high hopes for Toibin who will represent Ireland at the 2017 Miss Universe pageant in November.

"We have to have a representative every year, it's so important. Not only is she representing the people that are living on the Emerald Isle, she's also representing the Irish spirit that lives within 45 million people around the world".

Ní Toibín is not novice in the world of pageantry - she was a runner up at the Miss Cork pageant in 2015 and has been busy working on her experience with Lockdown Models.

"My parents are my number one fans at the moment. They are hugely supportive. My grandmother even lights candles for me. Representing my country on an international stage would be a dream come true," Ni Toibin said.
