Health minister Simon Harris pops the question
Health Minister Simon Harris has proven that love really is the best medicine - by proposing to his long-term girlfriend Caoimhe Wade.
After convincing Fianna Fail to partner up with Fine Gael during government negotiations, it seems the young minister was also able to convince his future bride to join her fortunes to his.
Ms Wade, who is originally from Wexford, said yes to the Wicklow politician after he popped the question yesterday afternoon.
Mr Harris and Ms Wade are a very private couple and the proposal is understood to have been a low-key affair in their home in Wicklow.
Mr Harris is a rising star in Fine Gael and has shot up the ministerial ranks since he was first elected to the Dail in 2011.
