Niamh and pals head for sun in search for love

NEWLY single model Niamh Walsh jetted off to Marbella for some fun in the sun with a group of girlfriends.

The blonde beauty (22) split with her footballer beau Steven Taylor in March and is now ready to find love once more.

"I'm still very much single and hoping to meet a nice guy while I'm away," she told the Diary.

"I haven't really been seeing anyone lately as I've been spending a lot of time over in Manchester for work. I love it over there but it's meant I haven't had time to meet anyone at home.

"Myself and a few of my single friends are going to Spain together so we're hoping we'll have better luck than we do in Dublin."

And while Niamh has been busy soaking up the rays since flying out to Marbella on Sunday, many of her Assets pals were hitting the tiles here in Dublin.

Leggy beauty Michele McGrath and her new co-hostess at Buck Whaley's Leah O'Reilly were on hand to welcome British model Lauren Pope to the Leeson Street venue on Sunday night when she unveiled her skills as a DJ.

Also spotted holding a belated celebration for her 28th birthday, which fell the weekend before last, was fellow Assets model Suzanne McCabe.

The blonde beauty was joined by a host of friends at the up-and-coming venue as she toasted the milestone.

Over in Krystle, Karena Graham was spotted letting her hair down with a group of pals following the Westlife concert at Croke Park on Saturday night.
