Aoibhinn is in a class of her own

Aoibhinn Ni Shuilleabhain may be one of the busiest rising stars on our screens, but for her students, it's business as usual.

The Herald can reveal that despite her high-profile romance with Ryan Tubridy and her burgeoning presenting career, her main focus is her Leaving Cert physics students.

"I'm still teaching full- time. To be honest I never ask what they think, that is completely separate to what I do.

"My main focus at the moment is getting sixth years through the Leaving Cert."

Aoibhinn said her recent programmes in RTE had been great and she looked forward to more roles in the future.

But she was staying tight-lipped on her relationship status, saying; "I'm not going to answer that," when grilled about Tubs. Aoibhinn however did emphasise the importance of supporting Irish style and was wearing a dress by Mayo up-and-comer, and former schoolmate, Sarah O'Neill.
