He is marching on after victory over Munster at the weekend and has a second Six Nations medal in his pocket.

But proud wife Aoife Cogan has no romantic getaway or a relaxing holiday planned for her hard-working hubby, Leinster and Ireland star Gordon D'Arcy.

It could even be next year before the busy pair have time for a break to celebrate what has been a successful 2014 so far.

"Gordon is still busy with Leinster so hopefully we will get a chance to get away in the summer when he has his holidays," Aoife told the Diary.

"But the business is very busy so I don't know if we will even get time for a holiday," added the model who is up to her eyes with her pilates business which the couple set up late last year.

The Castleknock native said that the studio, owned by herself and Gordon, is a long-term investment and her modelling career has taken a back seat as a result.

"I am there every day in the studio and when you get back into modeling you meet up with the girls and its nice to catch up, but Form School is taking up all my time at the moment.

"It is going so well and I just love it," she added.

Aoife has come a long way since winning Miss Ireland in 2005 and she said she owes a lot to the competition.

"I was modeling and travelling Australia for two years so when I came home, Miss Ireland was a great way to get my face back out there," Aoife told the Diary.
