 A number of Irish celebrities have shared touching Instagram tributes to the ladies in their lives to mark International Women's Day 2021.

Celebrated every March 8th, International Women’s Day is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women.

Irish stars such as Rozanna Purcell, Greg O’Shea, Laura Whitmore, and Rosanna Davison all commemorated the event online.

Former Miss Universe Ireland Roz Purcell highlighted the importance of International Women’s Day to her Instagram followers.

The 30-year-old said: “Today is the day that we have to acknowledge all the inspiring women who have inspired us along the way and still do and give us a helping hand.”

She also listed a selection of her favourite inspirational women, including Adi Roche and Olympian Sonia O’Sullivan.

Mary McAleese was also mentioned in Roz’s list, who said that the former president encouraged women to take on leadership roles.

“Yes, we can become president of Ireland. Maybe not me, I’ve done too many bikini photos,” she joked.

Meanwhile, Love Island’s Greg O’Shea paid tribute to his mum and sister with a photo of the trio enjoying some afternoon tea.

He captioned the post: “Shout-out to all the women of the world today, especially to the ladies in my life.

"I appreciate you. Literally wouldn’t be where I am today without you. #InternationalWomensDay”,

Greg wasn’t the only Love Island star to mark the occasion on Instagram. The show’s presenter, Laura Whitmore, shared an empowering poem from her new book.

The mum-to-be added: “Happy Women’s Day to all my ladies in all your shapes and forms.”

Meanwhile, model Rosanna Davison posted a series of quotes by Hillary Clinton, Michelle Obama, and Emma Watson.

She captioned the post: “Happy International Women’s Day! It’s a day for highlighting equal rights and opportunities, and for showing that by empowering and supporting other women, we can become stronger together.

“The changes we make now will help to pave the way for our daughters to grow up in a world of gender equality. #internationalwomensday #iwd2021,” the former Miss World continued.
