Fair City's Neasa Dillon might be happy with whirlwind romances, but offscreen, Aoibhin Garrihy is content with her hotelier boyfriend.
Fair City star Aoibhin Garrihy is loved up with her man, hotel owner John Burke.
However, Aoibhin says it will be far from a quickie engagement like her character Neasa Dillon as dividing their time between Dublin and Clare is enough for the pair right now.
"I'm still only 25 so I'm in no rush," Aoibhin told the Diary. "Things are busy at the moment and he lives in Clare -- we do see each other every weekend. He comes up or I go down, but we are definitely not living together.
"That will be the next step rather than any sort of a proposal to see if we can live together first."
While long distance is a pain for most, Aoibhin, whose dad is from Co Clare says she loves nothing more than spending some time in the west.
"I try and get down (to Clare) every second weekend so myself and John try and work it that way. I love it and my dad is from Doolin which is a great spot.
"If you get the weather during the summer, it's overlooking the Aran Islands so it's just beautiful."
