Miss Universe Ireland 2023 is Aishah Akorede

Aishah Akorede triumphed over nine other competitors to be crowned Miss Universe Ireland 2023 on Friday, September 22 at the Liberty Hall Theatre in Dublin.

The 23-year-old fashion model and Beauty and the Geek UK winner from County Kildare will now prepare to represent Ireland at Miss Universe 2023 in El Salvador this November.

Katie O'Connor was named first runner-up while Sofia Labus finished as the second runner-up.

The new Miss Universe Ireland is the founder of Recrowned Ireland, a non-profit women's empowerment and social justice initiative.

Aishah earned her Bachelor of Laws (LLB) from Griffith College in Dublin and her Master of Laws (LLM) from Queen's University Belfast. She is currently working as a corporate compliance consultant.

Ireland was last represented at Miss Universe in 2021 with Katharine Walker. The country has yet to win the title while its highest achievements were from Marlene Margaret McKeown and Roberta Brown, both finished as second runners-up respectively in 1963 and 1983.
