Sharon Touhey from Clara (representing Baggot’s pub) will be familiar to many from her participation in the The Model Agent programme on TV3 some years ago.

Sharon will now go on to represent Offaly in the Regional Final in Portlaoise on the June bank holiday weekend. The Midwifery student performed some karate moves as part of her interview with MC Brendan Hennessy.
