Our very first Miss Craic, Becca O’Reilly (22) from Tuam may be petite in size but she is strong in stature. Becca works out in the gym at least twice per week and was the perfect fitness model for our front cover photo shoot at Active 24 Fitness and Leisure Centre located at The Connacht Hotel. Becca was a participant in the Miss Galway competition and was voted Miss Craic by popular vote on our online poll!

“The photoshoot was brilliant,” she says, “we had great fun and it’s all a great experience for me. It has been an absolute great way to boost my self-confidence. I really liked the Active Fitness gym.  They have lots of new equipment and the pool area was really cool. I love my fitness. I do mini marathons and all that so I love the gym!”
