RTE's Sinead Kennedy has finally moved in with her husband - nearly two years after their wedding.

Her husband, Conor Kirwan, is a naval officer who was previously based in Cork and she works with the national broadcaster in Dublin, so they have been managing a long-distance relationship up until now.

But the Winning Streak presenter (32) is over the moon after they took the big step of moving in together after Conor moved to the capital.

Relationship

"He moved in with me after years of being apart.

"Our relationship was something that we did at the weekend and we didn't get to spend too much time together. But now we see each other all the time," she said.

"We feel even closer and we are more of a team. I know this sounds like a cliche, but we are stronger than ever."

She was with Conor for eight years before they got hitched.

Now that they'll be living together, she said she was looking forward to doing the everyday things that other couples take for granted.

The pair got hitched with a ceremony at Dromquinna Manor in Sneem, Co Kerry, in October 2014 - but had to put their honeymoon on the long finger due to work commitments.

But they made up for it a few months later, travelling to the small country of Belize in Central America for their dream honeymoon.

Given that she's been with Conor for so long, Sinead said that she wasn't suffering from nerves on her big day.

"I was more giddy and excited about seeing Conor," she said.

"I am always late for everything, as is my dad - so we were warned to be on time.

"My dad drove us to the church and it was just the two of us and there were no strangers in the car.

"When we arrived to the church, I had to take pictures with the bridesmaids, who were driving behind us, and I asked everyone to hurry up because I just wanted to get married.

"It was more excitement than nerves."

Shapes

Looking back on her wedding, Sinead admitted that she would have changed the timing of the speeches so she could show her moves on the dancefloor.

"I would have done more of the speeches between the courses," she told RSVP Magazine.

"We did the father of the bride and father of groom speech beforehand, but we left everyone else until the end.

"I was dying to get on the dancefloor and I didn't get moving until a lot later than I would have hoped."
