After it was revealed Luke Fitzgerald has found love with UCD student Sadbh McMahon, Independent Style can reveal Irish rugby star Sean O'Brien has been dating Miriam O'Callaghan's daughter Georgia McGurk for more than four months.

The Carlow native (28) is in the early stages of a romance with the DIT student (22) after first hooking up in October and the pair are said to be smitten with one another.

O'Brien, who enjoyed an on/off romance with law student Denise Smyth for two years before ending it for good last summer, is said to be so taken with the blonde beauty she even flew to Paris to support him during Ireland's Six Nations campaign.

Georgia, who is famously close with her seven siblings, including her twin sister Jessica, is no stranger to the social scene and counts Cian Healy's ex-girlfriend model Holly Carpenter and model Karena Graham as pals, but largely avoids the limelight - much like her new beau.

"Sean and Georgia haven't been putting their romance out there, but they're not hiding it either. They've been socialising in both Dublin and Carlow and they've both met each other's friends and some family members," an insider told us.

Munster star Conor Murray is also said to be back on the singles market after a five month romance with Limerick model Shauna Lindsay.
