WHY HAS THIS MAN DUMPED MISS IRELAND?
Contest boss Keiran Murray started a storm when he axed reigning Miss Ireland Niamh Redmond from next month's Miss Universe contest in Miami.
Instead the Limerick businessman has given the job to Miss Limerick Fiona Mullaly, who came third in the Miss Ireland contest. Fiona says she was told at Christmas she'd been chosen to go to Florida. Yesterday she signed a contract for the event. Niamh was given the brush-off by phone last week - with no explanation.
The question everyone is now asking is "Why?"
Niamh wants to know why she's been dumped. Her furious dad wants to know why his daughter has been treated so shabbily.
And Miss Ireland runner-up Michelle Murphy would also like an explanation.
She said last night: "I'm sorry for Niamh, but if she's not going why have I been passed over?
"I'm angry that I've apparently been overlooked. I'd like Kieran Murray to explain why he's sending Fiona Mullaly instead of me. The whole affair has been very shoddily handled at the last minute."
Niamh said: "I'm still waiting for an explanation."
But the only man who can provide it is refusing to say why.
