New Miss Ireland criticised for being ‘ugly’

Since being crowned as Miss Ireland last week, Jessica Hayes has received some negative attention from Twitter and Facebook trolls who have been calling her ugly. However, the 20-year-old beauty, who is from Cork, says she doesn’t let it get her down:

“There have been a few comments on some of the [Miss Ireland] pictures saying that I’m ugly and stuff like that but I don’t let it faze me.

“For every one bad comment there are 50 good ones so you can’t let them affect you.”

We’re glad to see that Jessica is taking these negative comments in her stride – we’re not sure we’d be able for that kind of attention at 20-years-old! And she is most certainly NOT ugly in our book!
