A FLASH MOB of gospel singers dressed in the uniforms of Dublin Airport Authority staff greeted a young German woman as she arrived to be reunited with her boyfriend for Valentine's Day.
Julia Schafer (24) and her French boyfriend, Romain Vigo Benia (23), known to their friends as Romeo and Juliet, were selected from hundreds of entrants to a 'Reunite in Ireland for Valentine's Day' competition run by The Gathering.
But what the German student didn't know was that love-struck Romain would serenade her with the opening line of the U2 song, 'All I Want Is You' in the Arrivals Lounge, before being joined by the Dublin Gospel choir.
"I couldn't believe it. I came out of the door and I saw Romain holding a bunch of flowers. At the beginning I was overwhelmed but it was so great," said a delighted Julia.
