A 20-year-old beauty from Stoneyford in County Antrim, Lauren Leckey, is the newly-crowned Miss Northern Ireland 2019. The runners-up were Chloe Spence & Heather Alexandra Burton.
Lauren succeeds last year’s winner, Katharine Walker in a glittering ceremony that was held at the Europa Hotel in Belfast on Monday, May 6.
The new Miss Northern Ireland is a former Hunter House College pupil and currently works as a sales representative. She will now go on to represent Northern Ireland at the Miss World 2019 pageant in London later this year.
As part of her prize, she will take home a designer wardrobe from Rosie’s Closet, a modeling contract with ACA Models as well as a year’s supply of beauty treatments and a Mini Cooper car.
