The first member of the Travelling community to take part in the Miss Ireland competition has now gone on to receive a Professional Diploma in Education from Trinity College.

And stunner Sarah Jane Dunne secured a 2.1 grade.

She will now go to London to work as a secondary school teacher, as well as keeping up her modelling career part-time.

The 24-year-old hopes that getting her degree may inspire other women from her community to follow suit.

"Many Traveller women don't go on to third-level education, which is a shame. So maybe seeing me do it might inspire more to go on to college," she said.

The Miss Kilkenny beauty pageant winner added that she found it increasingly frustrating to get a job in Ireland.

"There is a lack of jobs out there at the moment," Sarah Jane said.
