MISS IRELAND'S FEAR FOR MUM AFTER COLLAPSE; Shock before farewell bash.

Miss Ireland Niamh Redmond told last night of her family's heartache over her sick mother as she prepared to jet off to the Miss World contest in India.

The stunning 19-year-old was getting ready for her farewell bash yesterday when her mum suddenly collapsed.

The family at first thought Orla would have to be rushed to hospital - but their doctor later said she would be able to recover at home if she was confined to bed.

"She fainted, but she's okay now," said a relieved but visibly shaken Niamh at her party. "Otherwise she would have been here tonight."

Niamh said most of her family had been forced to miss the bash in the Peacock Alley restaurant on Dublin's South William Street because of the health scare. Her father was at home in Drimnagh, Dublin, taking care of Orla.

Despite the shock, Niamh still managed to look a million dollars when she unveiled her stunning evening-wear dress last night, created by Irish designer Kathy De Stafford.

"I won't say that `comfortable' was the first word that entered my head when I tried it on," said leggy Niamh of the sequinned blue number.

The finance student is rated at odds of 5-1 to land the coveted Miss World title.

But she has still got her feet on the ground as her final exams loom at Maynooth University next year.

Whether she sits them or not depends on how busy she is between now and Christmas working as Miss Ireland.

Or, hopefully, as Miss World.
