It’s official; rugby star Rob Kearney and his girlfriend Jess Redden made their first public appearance together as they dashed out of Dublin’s Shelbourne Hotel on Sunday morning.

Kearney, along with the rest of the Irish rugby squad, had decamped at Dublin’s five star hotel ahead of their victorious match against Australia.

And the Full Back looked pleased as punch as he left the plush hotel with blond bombshell Redden by his side.

Kearney has been dating the 21-year-old Stillorgan native for the past year. The couple initially kept their relationship under wraps but in recent weeks have been spotted out and about on several dates; they attended an Ed Sheeran gig with Rob's brother's Dave last month.

With her hair pulled back into a pony tail, the former Alexandra College student looked chic in a pair of white skinny jeans, a royal blue shirt and camel coloured scarf.

Kearney previously dated 'Footballers Wives' star Susie Amy (33) for over three years and hasn't been publicly linked with anyone since.

He was linked to MTV presenter Laura Whitmore during the summer after the two were spotted backstage at Electric Picnic but he dismissed rumours that they were more than just friends as “totally untrue”.
