Derry footballer Ciara McGurk didn't get the result she wanted on the pitch at Croke Park today - but ended up with the perfect moment after the final whistle.

The corner forward scored a first half goal for the Oak Leaf County in the All-Ireland Junior final this afternoon, but Fermanagh forced a replay with a dramatic late penalty.

McGurk was interviewed pitch-side by Dáithí Ó Sé after the game, when she was surprised by her boyfriend Ryan McCloskey, who was hiding behind her down on one knee.

McGurk accepted the proposal and the duo shared a lovely embrace in front of the crowd, which was captured by Jerome Quinn Media for the LGFA.
