Forget trips to Paris and New York, sometimes the most romantic proposals occur in a familiar spot.

Corkonian James O'Brien proposed to his girlfriend Eimer O'Leary on September 16 in the middle of Reardens Bar - Leeside's answer to Copper Face Jacks.

A noisy bar on a Friday night may seem like an unromantic setting for a marriage proposal but it's a spot that holds memories for the couple and they were surrounded by family and friends. The friendly staff at Reardens helped to take the surprise up a few notches by supplying balloons, flowers and champagne.

Sure if you're going to make a public proposal you may as well do it in a bar. The dim lighting can disguise any red faces and if the other person says no, you won't have to wander too far to drown your sorrows.
