Miss Universe Ireland 2017
Cailín Áine Ní Toibín
Cailín Áine Ní Toibín took the world by storm after winning the 2017 Miss Universe Ireland title and becoming the ambassador of the Emerald Isle. Cailín placed in the Top 4 in Europe and the Top 16 out of 96 countries at Miss Universe 2017. She is only the 8th Irish woman to make it to finals in the 66-year history of Miss Universe, the best placement for the Ireland in 7 years. The world embraced her as the people’s champion and her uncanny likeliness to Reese Witherspoon caused her to become a viral sensation on social media.
Cailín has been incredibly busy traveling the world as a spokesmodel for fashion & beauty brands and dedicated much of her time campaigning for charitable causes including Pieta House and Enable Ireland. She has encouraged the country’s youth to become more active in minding their mental health, connecting them to practical resources and tools.
Much more than a beautiful face, Cailín embodies the qualities that makes Miss Universe Ireland through her dedication and service to Irish communities. Cailín will always be our first Queen of the new era of Miss Universe Ireland.
