Adorable Irish proposal in wildlife park goes viral


A couple who got engaged at Cork’s Fota Wildlife Park have seen their sweet story go viral over the last two days.

Grace Fanning, an Irish naval officer, dropped to one knee to propose to her girlfriend of seven years, Carol Brady. The beautiful moment Carol said yes was caught on camera and the photos were posted by Fota, who have claimed them to be their most liked post so far! We can't say we are surprised by that! 

The proposal took place in front of the giraffes, Carol’s favourite animal and Grace has said they are delighted with the reaction: “It was fairly emotional alright but the reaction has been incredible.” Such a sweet story – apparently even the ladies' tour guide, Leslie cried! 

The couple hope to tie the knot in 2016 following this year’s same-sex marriage referendum.
