The blonde beauty is engaged to her fiancé John Burke and said she's far from a bridezilla as their big day approaches next year.

"Well, my mother said if my debs is anything to go by, she'll be emigrating before it".

John proposed to her on her birthday in June on the Cliffs of Moher by writing "marry me" on their dog Ruby's collar and subsequently melting all of our hearts in the process.

"The way he did it was very cute. He wouldn't be that way inclined at all so maybe he got some help," she said.

Aoibhin (27) is the eldest of three girls and despite it being the first wedding in the family, she insists she's taking it all in her stride.

Her other half runs the Armada Hotel in Spanish Point, so he's already a dab hand at wedding planning.

"It's going to be next September in John's hotel, so it's great to have that wealth of knowledge," she told the RTE Guide.

"It hasn't been stressful at all yet, I've really enjoyed it - there may be a career move yet to wedding planning."

The popular actress, who also featured on The Fall, will be reprising her role as Neasa Dillon in Fair City for some festive episodes.

"I always had it in the back of my mind that Neasa left in a taxi and not a box, which was good thing. I liked to think the door was always open there," she explained.
