Beauty Niamh says it's time to move on.

Beauty queen Niamh Redmond handed over her Miss Ireland crown late last night saying: "It's time to move on."

The accountancy student's reign was dogged by controversy.

She said: "It's been a tough year. From day to day I have enjoyed it but I had so much bad luck I wouldn't wish my year on anyone.

"But if I could go back I would still do it all again."

Niamh came under fire for appearing in a contraceptives advert shortly after being crowned.

She was then left off a list of Ireland's 100 most beautiful women before the biggest bombshell. Miss Limerick, Fiona Mulally, who came third in the Miss Ireland, was picked to represent the country in the Miss Universe competition in Miami.

Then Niamh's car was stolen, along with most of her wardrobe.

The Dublin beauty will spend September working for Price Waterhouse before returning to Maynooth College to finish her degree.

She said: "I hope whoever replaces me will have more luck with the crown than I did."
