Radio presenter Louise Duffy says there are advantages of having a fashion designer husband - she can sometimes wear his creations.

Former Kerry GAA star Paul Galvin has thrown himself into his menswear design work.

And Louise (31) said she was benefiting too.

She said his second Vanguard collection for Dunnes Stores was "going great".

"He's really enjoying it - and it means more clothes in our house now," said Louise. "Some of them I'm even getting away with, so I don't mind that at all."

The couple were wed in Louise's home town of Crossmolina, Co Mayo, on New Year's Eve, and she said it was "lovely" being married.

"It's all going good. It feels like forever ago now," she said.

Far from having a house-husband in the wake of his retirement from inter-county football, Louise said there was rarely an idle moment for Paul.

"He's still so busy. He's got a new website now and he's with Dunnes so I'm seeing just enough of him," she said.

Louise, who recently ditched her smartphone for a week to "detox" from social media, said she found the break "blissful".

"We're so obsessed with our phones . . . I vowed to stay off it as much as possible, but I've gone back to being as terrible as ever."

Asked about online trolling, Louise said she didn't let it bother her. "It's not worth your time to consider those things," she said.

Louise was speaking at the launch of Aviva's new Price Lock promise campaign.
