Speaking ahead of the Miss Waterford 2018 final, which takes place at Creation Nightclub in Dungarvan on August 11, Pulse Model manager David Kelleher says: “Look at the careers of former Miss Ireland winners like Jess Hayes, Aoife Walsh and of course Rosanna Davison - it’s an amazing opportunity. Of course it’s nerve-wracking, but it’s extremely rewarding.”
