Miss Ireland Aoife Walsh proves she has brains as well as beauty at Trinity graduation
Reigning Miss Ireland Aoife Walsh is topping off her incredible year with a postgraduate degree from Trinity College Dublin.
The Tipperary native (24) was crowned as one of Ireland's most beautiful women in May of this year.
And proving she isn't happy just being a pretty face, Aoife has completed her postgraduate diploma in Education from one of the world's most prestigious universities - her third degree overall.
She may have lost out on the Miss World crown, but she is one step closer to her dream teaching career.
Aoife was joined by her proud as punch parents Philomena and Liam, who travelled from the South East to support their daughter's milestone.
She already has a BA from University College Cork and a Masters in Business Management from the University of Limerick.
In September, she flew to Indonesia for the 63rd Miss World pageant.
The flame haired beauty previously revealed she has always had her head in the books and is keen to delve further into the modelling world now that she has the Miss Ireland profile.
“I’m a total geek; a ginger nerd who lives in the library and has been studying for the last six years," she said in earlier interview.
"So I think I deserve this break to give this a real go.
“This is my dream. I have always wanted to model, but I knew I had to study first. That’s why I’m late to the business."
