In 2002, Andrea Roche Model Agency was awarded the rights to host the Miss Universe Ireland pageant and to send an Irish representative to compete at Miss Universe. This came in 2003 after the Miss Ireland Organisation changed owners and dropped the license of Miss Universe. Since then the organisation has been sending the Republic of Ireland's representative to the international beauty pageant.
Since Ireland's debut in Miss Universe 1961, it has yet to produce an Irish Miss Universe.
