I'm too happy here for London move - Aoibhin

It seems Dublin's Fair City is too much of a draw for actress Aoibhin Garrihy

While many of Ireland's young thespians are trying their hand across the water, the Fair City star says she would need a very good reason to tempt her away from Carrigstown and her boyfriend, John Burke.

The 26-year-old Castleknock native has been playing man-eater turned good girl Neasa Dillon on the Dublin soap for the past three years.

"There's no point just moving over and saying we'll see what happens," said Aoibhin. "I'm a bit of a home bird anyway and for me to move to London when John is in Clare and I'm quite involved in the family business as well – that would scare the life out of me."

And another reason that makes working on the soap such a dream for Aoibhin is her close relationship with her on-screen family, particularly real-life bff Aoibheann McCaul.

"I couldn't ask for better colleagues; it's just fantastic."
