“I’m really into camogie, fashion and make-up and I’d consider myself really outgoing. I applied for Miss Ireland because it’s something I’ve always wanted to do. I applied during the first lockdown, and I just thought to myself - just go for it!”

Inspired by previous Miss Ireland winners such as Rosanna Davison and Chealsea Farrell, Taylor hopes to use the platform to convey a positive message.

“These uncertain times have changed my mindset completely and they have made me more aware of the importance of self-care. It is so important to be positive as much as possible and that’s the message I want to convey. Positive mental health is vitally important for all ages, I would like to use my Miss Westmeath platform to promote this.”
