Are Tubs and Aoibhinn ready for another try?

RTE broadcaster Ryan Tubridy and his former Rose of Tralee Aoibhinn Ni Shuilleabhain sure like to keep us guessing when it comes to their relationship.

The Diary can reveal how the high-profile presenters -- who went their separate ways last September -- set tongues wagging yet again last weekend when they cheered on Ireland to victory together at the Aviva stadium.

The Late Late Show host was spotted deep in conversation with the brunette beauty (27) at the Six Nations game, as they joined a host of other big names, all of whom are on the books of celebrity agent Noel Kelly, to support the boys in green from a corporate box.

Proving there are no hard feelings following their shock split last year, the two remained close by each other's side throughout the afternoon, but were giving nothing away when it came to the subject of their love lives.

"Aoibhinn and Ryan arrived separately and by all accounts appeared to just bump into one another," said a source.

"They were invited as part of a group through their agent, but ended up spending most of the afternoon talking to each other.

"They gave no indication that they were back together, but there was certainly no awkwardness between them, they appeared to be as close as ever," they added.

Just last month, notoriously private Aoibhinn opened up for the first time about the couple's split, explaining that she has been enjoying lots of nights out with gal pals as she readjusts to single life.

She and Ryan dated for more than 18 months, frequenting a number of red-carpet events during their time together.

The on/off couple have not been seen out and about together since the launch of Ryan's first book, JFK In Ireland, last October.

The presenters stepped out to the glitzy event just weeks after their break-up, with both insisting that it was "a date for one night only."

Since then both have been busy throwing themselves into their work, with Aoibhinn debuting her first solo TV show this month.

The bilingual three-part series saw the up and coming presenter meet with six choirs from all over the country to document their journey as they learned and performed popular Irish songs.

Ryan, meanwhile, is currently working on his second book, as well as hosting his 2fm radio show every day, along with his chat show every Friday.

The Montrose star is off air this week however, with his friend and fellow DJ Dave Fanning filling in for him on his morning radio programme.

The dad-of-two revealed how he was looking forward to taking some time out to "recharge his batteries".

Among the other big names who joined Ryan and Aoibhinn as they watched Ireland take victory over England at the weekend were fellow Montrose star Pat Kenny and his wife Cathy, restaurateur Derry Clarke and Grainne Seoige.
