She got engaged only a few days ago and the love-in continues for former Fair City actress Aoibhin Garrihy as she enjoys a romantic getaway in Paris.
The soap star is set to wed her long-term love John Burke after he popped the question over the weekend and now the pair are celebrating their engagement in the French capital.
The happy couple jetted to the European city on Tuesday and have been visiting some of the city’s top attractions.
However, top of their holiday to-do list was a visit to the Paris’s iconic Pont Des Arts bridge, where they added their own love-lock.
The Clare actress was all smiles as she tweeted a picture of her and her businessman other half “getting their lock on” at the iconic bridge, which overlooks the Eiffel Tower.
The bridge is a hotspot for smitten couples like Aoibhin and John looking to ‘lock-in’ their love for one another.
However, the Paris city council has a less sentimental view towards the tradition and announced plans to remove the locks earlier this year.
The actress told of her engagement earlier this week, after John popped the question with the help of the couple’s pet dog Rubie.
He asked the blonde to wed him by attaching a heart shaped tag with the message “Marry Me?” etched on it to Rubie’s collar.
