You may remember Irish beauty queen Rosanna Davison from a few years back, when she was named Miss World. She’s also the daughter of Chris deBurgh, the singer famous (or infamous) for that annoying hit “Lady in Red.”
Rosanna is living in Dublin, modeling and socializing, of course. She’s also planning her annual family holiday to the island of Mauritius, even though many in Ireland are calling for a boycott of the nation because Irish honeymooner Michaela McAreavey was murdered there in 2011, and no one has been brought to justice for the crime.
Rosanna, 28, has no intention of finding another island where the sun shines for her end of year kickback with the folks.
"I completely understand why (Michaela’s) family, friends and relatives will have developed a forever-tainted view of Mauritius and it's hard to even put into words how devastated I am for both families,” the busty blond told the Sunday Independent.
"My sympathies also extend to the majority of good, honest and hard-working people living on the island who must weather the damaging consequences. We will be returning to the island this Christmas and New Year."
Rosanna and her family have visited the island since 1995, she adds. "One of the most prominent reasons for our return every year is the genuinely friendly and open Mauritian people.”
