While approximately 100 fans of the Dublin mammy showed up in costume to participate in the contest, only 65 of them managed to meet the strict dress code to qualify.
While Mrs Brown creator Brendan O'Carroll was not present for the event, he expressed his delight on Twitter that it was taking place.

My fiancee, Teresa, encouraged me to enter at the last minute. It was great craic.
