Model Shauna Lindsay (20) has said she can't wait to move up to Dublin next month as her modelling career goes stellar.

Rugby star Conor Murray's love interest has told the Diary she'll be moving to the capital next month as she's been so busy with work.

Speaking for the first time since news of her four month romance with the 26-year-old Munster and Ireland star was revealed, she said it's a great opportunity for her to boost her modelling career.

"I'll be moving up to Dublin in the next couple of weeks for work. "It just makes sense to move up as I've been so busy the past few months working with Andrea Roche. It's the right time for me and I'm super excited."

However, the Clare native didn't comment when asked about her reported romance with hunky rugby star Murray and declined speak about their relationship. No doubt absence will make the heart grow fonder when it comes to her and her other half, who is based in Limerick.

Last week, the brunette beauty turned heads in Dublin as she modelled at the Debenhams fashion show in House, where she showed off the latest line in new season swimwear.

She was the envy of all after it was revealed that she was being romanced by the rugby star, who was once voted the sexiest player on the Ireland squad. This isn't the first time that the in-demand model has been linked to an Irish rugby player.

Two years ago, she made headlines after Munster star Simon Zebo tried to flirt with her on Facebook - sparking the ire of her then-boyfriend, Limerick DJ JJ Hartigan.

The 5'10" 19-year-old has been working as a model for the past three years, becoming the face of Gosh cosmetics and then winning Miss Limerick in 2013.

Lindsay was also one of the finalists in the Miss Universe Ireland contest last December, which was judged by Rozanna Purcell. She has signed up with Celia Holman Lee in Limerick and is also with Andrea Roche in Dublin as she has been inundated with offers of modelling work.

Speaking about her love of her job previously, she said she relishes being in the spotlight.

"It's just the buzz you get off it - it's such an adrenaline rush when you walk out in front of all the people. I love it," she said.
