Sligo native Shauna Keane was surprised when her other half Joe O'Donnell got down on one knee and popped the question.

"I'm going to have to change the title of my big hit to 'I want to dance with you... forever!'" Daniel joked.

Joe and Shauna have been dating for several years and Joe knew Shauna was 'The One' from the moment he laid eyes on her.

"To be honest, it really was love at first sight," he said.

"Shauna is my Mary from Dungloe, not just for 2016 but forever!"

A beaming Shauna couldn't hide her delight.

"I really just can't believe this, I am just over the moon," she gushed.

Meanwhile, Eva Ní Dhoibhlinn was crowned the 2016 Mary from Dungloe.

The competition is now in its 50th year.
