Aoibhin Garrihy is busy planning her wedding, but said she’s anxious about her future husband’s upcoming “risky” hiking expeditions to far-flung lands.
Hotelier John Burke proposed to the Fair City actress on her 28th birthday in June.
The excited bride-to-be said that the proposal was “special” and that she’s relishing the creative preparation involved in the wedding.
Aoibhin spends three days in Clare with her other-half and four days in Dublin, but she said that she sometimes fears when John takes part in adventurous expeditions.
“He’s climbing the Himalayas on a month-long expedition. It’s really risky – he’s on these vertical ice-ridges and whatever else,” she said.
“Sometimes I wish he’d just join a golf club, but he has a passion – and you can’t hold back the tide. If someone has a passion for something, you have to let them go at it, otherwise they’ll resent you.”
“It’s not ideal when I’m at home minding the dog, but he would do the same for me if something popped up.
“If you’re confident in your relationship though, and there’s trust, there’s nothing to worry about.”
Aoibin told VIP magazine that she fell in love with John’s “charming nature” and was hoping he would pop the question.
“We had been talking about it and I was getting to the stage where I was like, ‘Get on with it’,” she said.
“He wasn’t put under any pressure at all, but he knew he needed to get a move on.”
