Everyone has been enjoying catching up with friends over the festive period and former Irish model Ruth O'Neill and her pal, former RTE2 presenter Katie Van Buren enjoyed a reunion at the Shelbourne Hotel over the holidays.

Ruth posted a picture (inset) of the glamorous pair posing in front of a beautiful Christmas tree at the top Dublin hotel.

"Christmas banter - always a funny night with Katie van Buren," she captioned the pic.


Ruth flew home from LA where she works as a reporter for showbiz news agency, E! News and was excited to be back in her home town posting lots of pictures of Christmas lights, Phoenix Park in the frost and of nights out with friends.

Katie (26) previously hosted Two Tube and The Juice on RTE and moved to New York in 2012 where she now works for Fuse TV, owned by Jennifer Lopez.

While she loves the Big Apple, she has said she would return home if the right opportunity came along.

"I would definitely fly home for a show. I have no attachments and I'm very lucky at this stage in my life," she said.
