The Miss Earth Ireland organization hosted the 2021 edition of the competition a few days ago at the Royal Theatre in Castlebar, where Bronwyn O’Connell was crowned as Miss Earth Ireland 2021 as she bested 23 other contestants for the crown. She will now be preparing to represent Ireland at the international Miss Earth 2021 pageant. Bronwyn succeeds Miss Earth Ireland 2020 Eileen O'Donnell for the title.

Hailing from Dublin, 27 years-old Bronwyn is an Irish flight attendant and model by profession. As a model, she is signed with Catwalk Model Agency. In 2017, she joined Aer Lingus as a cabin crew. She regularly flew to different parts of the United States including to New York, to Boston, Massachusetts, to San Francisco, California, to Newark, New Jersey and Washington. She also works closely with Keep Dublin Clean, an organization that cleans beaches and surrounding areas.

Not new to pageantry, Bronwyn was crowned Miss Dublin Central in 2019. While reigning as Miss Dublin Central 2019, she volunteered for Pieta House and helped the homeless and people suffering from mental health issues. She was also a finalist at Miss Ireland 2019. As a flight attendant, she wants to educate people on how to make their flying journey a more sustainable and Earth-friendly one with a goal of a carbon free aviation sector by 2050.

Miss Earth Ireland 2021 Bronwyn O’Connell’s court includes –

Miss Earth Fire Ireland 2021: Clodagh Cahill

Miss Earth Water Ireland 2021: Vivian Diamond

Miss Earth Air Ireland 2021: Nira Ogorman



In an interview post crowning, Bronwyn mentioned, “I’m still in shock, it hasn’t hit me yet and I’m just so excited for what’s ahead. I literally am so thankful to all. I’m very excited to put the hard work in and raise the Irish flag high in Philippines.” One thing she really wants to achieve in her reigning year is getting recycling on board, or some sort of way to recycle the plastic and waste on board across the aviation industry.

Congratulations queen!
