Huge local support for Love Island’s Maura Higgins in tonight’s showdown

Love Island’s Maura Higgins is being backed 100pc by her former employer to win the show in tonight’s final.

The Ballymahon native and her island beau Curtis are one of four couples fighting for the top prize of more than €50,000.

The fans favourites so far are loved up Tommy and Molly-Mae but Caitriona Egan says she believes Maura can be crowned island queen.

Model Maura worked for Caitriona in the Occasions hair salon in Ballymahon for five years from 2009 and says she was always a very funny, popular girl.

And she says that whatever happens in tonight’s showdown Maura will do very well from her hugely popular Love Island appearance and she has the backing of everyone in Ballymahon .
