THEY eventually want to set up home in Ireland, but for now love birds Ronan Keating Ronan and Storm Uechtritz are back in the country where they first met.

The Boyzone frontman and his TV producer other half arrived in her native Australia yesterday for another stint down under.

And it was straight back into work for dad-of-three Ronan, who spent the afternoon discussing the latest episode of The X Factor Australia.

It seems that the singer-turned-actor has been joined by his kids on the trip too.

Ronan shared a picture of himself and his daughter Ali over the weekend and his 14-year-old son Jack messaged Storm on Twitter admitting he had yet to pack, only hours before the flight.


In order to spend more time with his kids, Dubliner Ronan and his girlfriend are hoping to buy a property in the Irish capital and Storm revealed that they have been quietly browsing potential homes.

"I love Ireland and I think it's absolutely beautiful. We're kind of house hunting, we're keeping our eyes open about it at the moment," she told the Herald.

"We know we want some privacy and a bit of land, I grew up on a farm so I'd like a horse and a vegetable patch."

In the meantime, the couple will be splitting their time between Oz and the UK.

Ronan (37) will make his debut on the West End stage this year, joining the cast of musical Once. He is also lined up for several movie roles including in The Riders.

And in between all of his commitments, Ronan and Storm, who have been dating since September 2012, are writing their own material for the screen. They have co-written a screenplay for a love-story drama and are hoping to get a TV pilot off the ground.
