Molly-Mae Hague won't be back in Ireland anytime soon, according to The Clare Echo. Remember when she took a private plane to an underage disco in Co. Longford? We do.

The Queens Nightclub in Ennis announced during the airing of Love Island that the social media influencer would appear for a meet-and-greet in August.

Tickets had been on sale for the event, but the nightclub have now confirmed that Molly-Mae has postponed her trip indefinitely to Co. Clare.

The Ennis venue wrote; “Due to unforeseen circumstances Love Island’s Molly-Mae Hague has had to postpone her appearance at Queens Nightclub Ennis this Saturday night.

"She would like to apologies to all her fans. Full refunds available on tickets already purchased from both eventbrite.com and Kaffeine," they added.

"Stay tuned to our social Media Accounts for further updates. Apologies for any inconvenience caused."

Molly-Mae has been dating professional boxer Tommy Fury since mid-way through the ITV reality show, but is currently undergoing photoshoots in Los Angeles.

The star has yet to comment on the postponement of her nightclub appearance, after winners Greg O'Shea and Amber Gill spent the weekend in the county to see the Cliffs of Moher.

You're missing out on some Wild Atlantic Way beauty, gal. Your loss, we say.

The 'Irish Zac Efron' (bold claim) has joined the cast of Love Island USA and is ready to set pulses racing on the reality show.

26-year-old Cormac Murphy is a nightclub promoter and model from Ennis in Co. Clare who has worked and lived in New York since 2016.

He's set to spice things up as a self-confessed ladies man, saying in his VT; “If I went to college I’d have a degree in women.” We're fairly sure he didn't graduate…

He's willing to shake things up in the idyllic Fiji location, explaining;  “I don’t think they know what’s coming, I’m going to turn some heads.”

Of course, he insists he's hoping to find The One on the show (who doesn't) rather than fame and fortune; “I’m here on Love Island and I’m ready for love.” Mmmhmmm.

Dubbed the 'Irish Zac Efron', most likely by himself, he's been making a living in the Big Apple as a male model.

He's also working with The Greene Room, a promotion and events agency founded by Sligo native Patrick Greene.

Patrick posted his reaction to Cormac's Love Island casting on social media, joking; “They’re going to need some love therapy after they see Cormac walk down the beach into Love Island.

The model previously lived in Australia for two years, but has chosen New York as his home for his career. Murphy entered the villa with another newbie, bringing the total number of contestants to 13.

We wonder if the professional partier will make as big an impression as his Irish counterpart, Maura Higgins? Not possible. Queen Maura has captured the hearts of the UK and Irish nation.

Cormac has definitely got his eyes set on the €88,000 prize money, which is far more than the UK winners' amount. The format is generally the same as the UK counterpart, only much less risqué. 

Love Island USA is broadcast on CBS to millions of viewers, and the show will run until August 7. Irish viewers can catch it on Virgin Media Two and ITVBe in the UK.

So, this month there is an 18-year old on the cover of Italian Vogue.

His name is Aidan Walsh and he’s from Barefield in Ennis, Co. Clare. He appears to be making a bit of a name for himself in the London fashion scene.

Since 2014 he’s been based in the city at the Bird College of Dance and Theatre Performance where he is continuing his dance training. According to the Clare Herald he was spotted at the age of 12 at a Ballet Ireland course and was thought to be something of a prodigy.

Aside from his studies, Aidan has been doing some modelling and doing it very well it would seem.

He’s represented by the Tomorrow is Another Day Model Agency in London.

Before moving to London Aidan had trained at various dance companies and schools in Ireland which included Youth Ballet West and the Corrib Dance Academy.

He is now the male face of Italian Vogue, which he announced on his social media accounts.

The cover was shot by famous fashion photographers Mert Alas and Marcus Piggot.

Aidan now joins the likes of Kate Moss, Naomi Campbell, Isabella Rossellini, Gisele Bundchen and Kate Upton who have all featured on the famous magazine’s cover.

Oh, and if you were curious that is a love bite on his neck- because fashion.

He told Ryan Tubridy in an interview that it is a real hickey and how it came to be was quite amusing:

"I thought they were going to do it with make-up ’cause, you know, there’s a team of professional make-up artists there," but when it comes to Vogue Italia everything must be authentic:

"They decided that the only way to actually give me one was to physically give me one, so one of the make-up assistants had to give me one on my neck."

Tough day at the office then.
