She has only been on the celeb scene for a few months, but Conor Murray’s ex-girlfriend Shauna Lindsay is already planning to take over Tinseltown.

The Clare native hit the headlines when her romance with the rugby star was made public, and now she’s primed to put her own name up in lights.

With the pair no longer together, the former Miss Limerick is looking ahead to a summer getaway and hoping to cash in on her LA contacts.

“I am going to America for two months,” she told the Herald Diary. “I am going to San Francisco for a month and then to Los Angeles for another month.

“My sister lives in LA, so I’ll be staying with her while there.”

The trip will not be the 21-year-old’s first time in Hollywood. Last year she went to Los Angeles where she starred in a film and became pals with numerous industry insiders.

“I made a few contacts in LA last year,” she said.

“I went to a film festival and shot a fashion film as well while I was there.

“I met some very cool people so, hopefully, there will be some exciting projects to work on – there are so many opportunities.”

Shauna also has high hopes for her chances on the small screen on Irish shores, adding: “I could see myself on TV.”

Although she is not sure what direction she will take just yet, Shauna is open to all possibilities.

The brunette reckons she would provide a lot of entertainment for viewers with her antics.

“I think I am a bit of a character, I am a bit mad. I think I would be entertaining,” she said. “I could see myself on reality TV, but I don’t know what I would do, to be honest,” she said.

“Maybe reality TV and the like would suit me.”

The Clare model has ambitions of kick-starting a presenting career and revealed Xpose would be her dream show to front.

“I would love to [host Xpose] because I love fashion and they get it so perfectly,” she said.

With many models turning to alternative avenues like blogging and nutrition to broaden their career opportunities, Shauna reckons people do not know how much work goes into maintaining a strong social media presence.

“I had a website running, but it is so time-consuming keeping it going,” she said.

“I got so busy and then I was just neglecting it, so I took it down. But I am thinking about relaunching my website and doing more blogging. People are really interested in my make-up and my style.”
