Actor Jim Carrey will make his first appearance since the death of Cathriona White this Sunday.

The 52-year-old star will present at the Golden Globes this weekend, his first red carpet since the Irish makeup artist took her own life in September.

Carrey has avoided the spotlight for the last three months as he grieves for the Tipperary native, whom he dated on and off since 2013.

According to Hollywood Foreign Press Association, he is among the list of presenters.

Following her funeral in her native Cappawhite in October, Carrey tweeted an image of the two them kissing with the message "Love cannot be lost" and has avoided social media since.

The actor joined her family and friends in the Tipperary village, where she was buried beside her late father Pat.

Cathriona, a 30-year-old make-up artist, was found dead in a house in Sherman Oaks, California, on September 28. Carrey, who was in an on-off relationship with Cathriona in recent years, described her death as like being "hit with a lightning bolt".

At the time of her death, the Dumb and Dumber actor released a statement saying: "I am shocked and deeply saddened by the passing of my sweet Cathriona.

"She was a truly kind and delicate Irish flower, too sensitive for this soil, to whom loving and being loved was all that sparkled. My heart goes out to her family and friends and to everyone who loved and cared about her. We have all been hit with a lightning bolt."
