Aoibhinn and Company with Olive White
This week, Aoibhinn meets Dubliner Olive White who was crowned Miss Ireland in 1961. She recalls the excitement of her days as a girl in Crumlin in Dublin, her teenage modelling career, her job in RTÉ working as a presenter on Jackpot and finally her whirlwind romance with Kits Browning whom she met while working as an acting extra in Ardmore Studios in Bray, County Wicklow.
Olive paints a picture of Dublin in the early 1960s and how her cheeky charm lead one of her contemporaries to later dub her as Ireland's Kate Moss of the era.
Olive married Kits while still a teenager and moved to live with him first near London and later in Cornwall. She recalls her late mother in law, the writer Daphne du Maurier and explains that her favourite of her books is the little known novel The Progress of Julius.
Olive describes her relationship with her parents and sisters and how age has brought an increasing appreciation of her family and the values of the community in which she was reared.
