Now Louise joins London exodus of Irish models

Model Louise Kavanagh has become the latest beauty queen to quit Irish shores and relocate to London.

The Diary can reveal how the leggy brunette, who has been noticeably absent from the social scene recently, is living it up in the UK capital after upping sticks and leaving Dublin last month.

The party girl has been staying with a number of gal pals as she attempts to break into the modelling industry across the water.

Louise is due home this week for a brief visit, but will be returning to Britain almost immediately.

"She moved over a couple of weeks ago as she fancied a change of scenery," said a close friend.

"There's a group of them over there and they're having a ball enjoying the social life and partying hard. Louise is single at the moment and has no ties so she figured that now was the right time for her to go and experience something different.

"She's coming home for a day this week to visit her family and catch up with friends but she'll only be here for 24 hours.


"She's still with Assets and plans to fly home for any big jobs but in terms of modelling work there's a lot more available in London right now than there is in Dublin."

Louise first made her name after competing in the Miss Universe contest in 2008 and dated Foxrock socialite Andy Quirke, brother of Rosanna's beau Wesley, for over a year.
