WATCH: Santa helps this man propose to his 'Christmas crazy' girlfriend in Dublin


When you're set to propose at Christmas, there really is only one man for the job.

Barry Clarke (34) from Shankill, Co Dublin, got a helping hand with his surprise proposal when Santa joined in on the special occasion yesterday.

"I was planning on proposing for a while but I wanted to be a surprise. In fact it was a total shock to Suzanne! We have a 2 year old son called Cameron, and I wanted it to be special for him too. He had to be part of it", Barry told Independent.ie.

"We are together 10 years and 11 Christmases. Suzanne mentioned that she had booked to see the Arnotts Santa. As I was driving into town with Cameron to meet her I thought I would put a special Christmas request into Santa directly.

"I just walked into Arnotts and asked them to help out. They loved the idea and jumped at the opportunity. I only had to keep it a secret for a couple of hours. The Nerves.

"Santa played a blinder. Our son Cameron stayed quiet and didn't really take any notice."

"And for my Fiance Suzanne, who is Christmas-crazy, There was no greater gift at Christmas. A great end to the super year and an exciting start to 2018."
