Cork singer Claudia Rose Long and Republic of Ireland footballer Sean Maguire are celebrating their Christmas engagement.
The couple has been an item since 2016 and Sean was a Cork City FC goalscoring hero until his move across the water to play for Preston North End.
Claudia, from Ballyphehane, is also remembered for her time on the TV talent show, The Voice UK, when she was wowing judges from the blind auditions onwards.
Sean went down on bended knee in front of close friends and family over the Christmas period.
The couple shared the happy news on their Instagrams. "Today my best friend asked me to marry him, happiest day of my life", wrote Claudia.
"She said yes. A special moment shared with some special people," said Sean.
