Coleen stays on in the lap of luxury after O'Shea's big day

WAG Coleen Rooney is enjoying an extended break on Irish shores following John O'Shea's wedding this week.

As hubby Wayne bids to lead England's World Cup attack in South Africa, Coleen has stayed on at Carton House in Co Kildare, following Manchester United star O'Shea's nuptials.


Coleen, who gave birth to her first son, Kai Wayne last November, has booked into the exclusive Maynooth venue for two additional nights in order to spend time relaxing in the Emerald Isle.

The 24-year-old told pals she was eager to spend some time taking it easy at the luxurious four- star hotel and was hoping to fit in a trip to the resort's spa yesterday.

The high-profile Liverpudlian joined fellow wedding guests, including her hubby's footie pals, Wes Brown, Andy Keogh, Paul McShane, Darron Gibson, Stephen Hunt and Kevin Doyle, at a lunch yesterday afternoon as they again toasted the happy couple.

Queen WAG Coleen enjoys a close friendship with O'Shea's childhood sweetheart Yvonne Manning, with the new bride even catching Coleen's bouquet at her own lavish wedding ceremony in Italy two years ago.

The yummy mummy is also expected to take a trip to Dublin, which is just 20 minutes from the Kildare hotel, to hit the capital city's shops during her visit.

A hotel insider explained how Coleen is also contemplating having her mother Colette McLoughlin and her baby son join them tonight before flying back to the UK tomorrow in time for the kick-off of the World Cup in South Africa. The glamorous brunette won't be jetting out for the opening of the much-anticipated soccer tournament however, explaining that she would much rather watch the games from the comfort of her own front room.

She says that she will jet to South Africa to cheer on her other half if England make it into the semi-finals.

Wayne's wife is said to be glad to have her trip to Ireland to act as a distraction in the run up to the games.

"Coleen's decided to stay on for a couple of days to relax and take in the sights," said a hotel insider.

"She's hoping to do some shopping and catch up with some friends while she's here. She mentioned that her mum might come over as well with the baby.

"They'll be staying in England for the World Cup rather than going to South Africa so this is an opportunity for her to have a bit of a holiday away from all the build up to the games," they added.
