Niamh aims to conquer universe.

Miss Ireland beauty Niamh Redmond is keeping her fingers crossed for success in the Miss Universe contest this summer.

She revealed: "I hope it goes better than Miss World did. I felt dead when I came home from that."

Niamh was upset by protests at the beauty pageant in India, where all of the contestants were guarded around the clock after protesters threatened to set themselves on fire.

Although a favourite with bookies and the organisers, Niamh failed to be placed at all.

However, the Dublin beauty, who was on a year's sabbatical from her business studies degree at Maynooth College, said her modelling career has now taken off.

Niamh, talking at the launch of the Upper Crust Film Buff's competition in Blanchardstown Shopping Centre, added: "It's been really great."

But she plans to finish her degree before thinking of taking to the catwalk full time.
