James McClean's fiancee Erin Connor has opened up about the couple's low-key wedding plans.

The blonde beauty, who has been engaged to the Ireland winger for over two years, revealed the couple will exchange vows next year in Ireland.

"We want the wedding to be at home so all our friends and family can go," she told the Irish Daily Star before the Euro 2016 qualifier n Sunday night. "It will be really exciting when it happens."

Erin hit Aviva Stadium with James' sister Mary Jane and their best friend Rory Kelly, who introduced the couple to one another at a Derry nightclub after James "had his eye" on Erin, a nursing graduate.

"We were in the Metro nightclub in Derry when he saw Erin," Rory explained to the paper. "I think he had his eye on her for quite a while."

Their daughter Allie Mae (16 months ) is still too small to attend a game, but Erin said she can't wait to make it a family trip when she's older.

"I like to get her down for 7:30pm so the nights are too late for her, but we'll take her when she's a wee bit older," she added to the paper.
