Do you have Charlie Girl charm or Chanel chic?

I have Charlie Girl charm. I am bright, out-going and full of life - a real charmer.

Describe yourself in five words:

I love to socialise with lots of fun-loving people in pubs and clubs. I'm very outgoing - if there is a party to go to, I'm usually there. I tend to get on well with everyone I meet. But if someone wants to get to know the real me, then they would have to spend some quality time with me. I live for the moment, which sometimes can be a good thing or a bad thing, depending on what is on offer.

How typical are you of your star sign?

Libra the Loner - that's about all I know about my star sign. I am into romance, but I am still waiting to be swept off my feet by the right guy. I used to be the kind of person who fell in love far too easily. But I have learnt my lesson about that over time. Just send me a big bunch of flowers and I'll let you know how I feel now!

Describe your ideal man:

My ideal man must have a good personality and a good sense of humour - these are essential qualities. I like to look at things in a light-hearted manner and I enjoy things which make me laugh a lot. I'd expect my ideal man to feel the same. I think it is much better to laugh than to frown. If a man catches my eye, then I would say he could be in with a chance. If he gets a second glance, well, who knows what would happen.

Reveal the best and worst chat-up lines you have been subjected to:

The best chat-up line was: "Here's 20p, ring your mother and tell her you'll be late home."'The worst line I've ever heard was: "I'm in love with you - will you marry me?"' I mean please, men usually say things like after 15 pints of lager!

Describe your ideal date and what music would be playing in the background :

My ideal date would take place on a ship - a cruise liner in the Caribbean. I would be having dinner on the deck with a handsome, witty man with a gorgeous smile of course! I would be wearing a lilac silk gown and my date could wear whatever he wanted. There would be waiter serving us throughout the meal so that we felt pampered. And then we would use our imagination for dessert! The music? Well, it would have to be the theme from Titanic by Celine Dion of course!

Describe your most embarrassing moment:

I was having a conversation with a guy I met recently. We hardly knew each other and as we started having a conversation about cats, I got my wires crossed slightly. He mentioned two names and I said there were lovely names for cats. Unfortunately, he was talking about his sisters' names.

Are you into curry and lager or wine and cheese?

I'm into Rose wine and cheese. Although I'd much prefer a box of home- made chocolates.

Describe your happiest moment so far.

Thankfully, I've had so many happy moments that it would be impossible to mention them all. Since I started my new job I have been able to meet people from all walks of life. This makes me appreciate what I have even more. I just make the best of what I have.

What has been your life's greatest achievement?

It would have to be winning the national finals of the Make a Model competition. The finals were held in Cork so the support on the night was tremendous. It was such a brilliant experience that I cried before, during and after the results were called out. People still associate me and the other four girls with winning the competition, even though it happened two years ago.

When you click your fingers who normally comes running?

I'm not in the habit of clicking my fingers. But even if I did, I would not expect anyone to answer me.

Where can we find you on a Saturday night?

I'm usually in Cubin's night-club in Cork that is if I'm not travelling around the country somewhere. I love travelling at weekends. But if I'm in Cork then I can usually be found in pubs like The Oak, Rob Roy, Goat Broke Loose, Mulligans and Nestors, to name but a few!

What was the naughtiest thing you did as a child?

My mother always wanted me to learn how to play the piano, much to my annoyance. Before every lesson, I would accidentally on purpose lose a page of the piece of music I was due to play that day. My lack of practice was the only way I could think of getting out of playing the piano.

Name your favourite book and film.

My favourite book is called The Irish - I read it six years ago and I don't remember who wrote it. My favourite film is Face Off.

If you could be famous who would you be and why?

If I could be famous then I would choose to be a singer, in a band like The Corrs. I love going to live performances because of the fantastic buzz in the audience.

How would you make the first move on a man who sent your pulse racing?

I think eye contact is very important. If I thought the vibes were right with the prey, sorry, the man, then I'd approach him later in the evening. I would not make a direct approach in case I scared him off. Obviously, I would hope he would approach me first. But if this did not happen then I would watch his moves very closely. I'd time it so that we met at the bar. I would mistakenly rub against his shoulder, we'd make eye contact and then he would be putty in my hands!
