Sorry ladies, but rugby star Cian Healy is off the market.

The Leinster prop is back with his ex-girlfriend, Laura Smith (inset).

The pair first got together when they were in school, but split up in 2012 when Laura moved to New York to pursue a career in advertising.

Cian (28) then started seeing former Miss Ireland Holly Carpenter (24), but they called it quits last year.

It’s believed Cian and Laura rekindled their relationship this summer after she moved back from the Big Apple.

“She’s a really nice girl – she’s very down to earth and very  career driven,” an insider told the Herald.

“She did really well for herself in New York and she’s been there for Cian since she got back.

“She’s been over to Cardiff to support him during the World Cup – and now she’s on holiday with him in Dubai.”

They were last pictured together at the Leinster Rugby Annual Awards Ball at the RDS in 2009. But now she’s with Cian and a few members of the Irish squad – including Rob Kearney (29) and Luke Fitzgerald (28) – who are sunning themselves in Dubai following last weekend’s crushing defeat against Argentina.

It is believed the lads, along with their other halves, left Dublin on Tuesday for some much-needed rest and relaxation.

Rob’s girlfriend, Jess Redden (21), has been sharing lots of pictures of their luxurious surroundings – the five-star Atlantis hotel on the man-made Palm island resort.

Rooms cost from €900 a night, but the resort boasts an underground aquarium, adventure water park and the opportunity to swim with dolphins.

What better place to wash away the disappointment of the World Cup?

Meanwhile, Jamie Heaslip has been relaxing on a trip to New York. He’s left the strict diet behind him, indulging in lots of pizza, coffee and burgers.

It’s believed he is there with his long-term girlfriend, Sheena O’Buachalla.
