Cian Healy

Danny O'Reilly has been on and off with TV presenter Laura Whitmore for years now, but it seems he officially has a new woman in his life. 

According to the Irish Herald, the Irish heartthrob is rumoured to be seeing former Miss Ireland, Holly Carpenter.

What a handsome couple! 

Danny, 29,  rose to success with his distinctive voice and catchy songs as part of his band the Coronas and is the son of well know Irish singer Mary Black. 

According to a source close to the pair, Danny and the 24-year-old stunner have been getting pretty cosy over the last few weeks. 

"It's been going on for a few weeks now and things have been going well. He's really busy with the band. They're in Australia at the moment touring and she's flying it with her modelling career, so it's still early days.

"But they've lots in common and are just taking it as it comes."

This is the first reported romantic link for Irish model since she broke it off with Cian in July of last year. 

Danny has been on and off with his ex Laura since 2012 but despite being snapped getting cosy only back in May of this year, it would seem their tumultuous relationship is over for good. 

So move over Bressie and Roz! There is definitely a new Irish IT couple in town. 



Not too long ago it appeared that ladies (and possibly some men) the world over were completely infatuated with none other than ourselves.

Actually, to be totally truthful, it’s the Irish men they fancy. A dating and travel website, MissTravel.com has even recorded Irish lads to be the best looking in the world.

Well, tell us something we don’t know. If you haven’t exactly been feeling the love for the home grown talent lately, allow us to refresh your memories.

We gathered up a list of Ireland’s most eligible bachelors.


Micheal Fassbender

The Kerry-native is a BIG hit in Hollywood. We’re not all that surprised, what a lovely smile you have got there Michael.


Niall Horan

Our most favourite member of 1D. Seeing one of them is already set for fatherhood, it’s only a matter of time before the rest follow suit so we better get to tweeting this Mullingar guy soon.


Domhnall Gleeson

The 32-year old is not just a one trick pony; he writes, acts and directs. Bonus points for being besties with Brad and Angelina.



That album; that guitar; THAT voice. Need we say anymore? Nope, didn’t think so.


Cian Healy

Not just a rugby player either. He also loves dogs and he's a DJ.


Rory McIlroy

The Co. Down local spent 93 weeks as the world's number one ranked professional golfer. That's an awful lot trips to Dubai, and Florida, FYI.


Dave Kearney

Brother Rob might get more attention, but we reckon Leinster star Dave is every bit as desirable. He seems to hold babies well too. #swoon


OK, so we know you’ve watched a LOT of celebrities take on the Ice Bucket Challenge at this stage, but this one we just had to share with you!

Forget a mere bucket of iced water over the head – Irish rugby star Cian Healy took on a whole fire crew for his charity challenge!

Not only can he do a brilliant Bonnie Tyler impression, but with the help of the Blanchardstown Fire Brigade in Dublin, Cian really took the challenge up a notch!

He then nominated Joe Schmidt, Katie Taylor and the BOD’s lovely wife Amy Huberman.

Beat that guys!




We reckon the women’s Irish rugby team are LOVING Cian Healy right about now!

The rugby player managed to win them free tickets to the sold-out Electric Picnic by getting into the ‘80s spirit and belting out Bonnie Tyler’s Total Eclipse of the Heart.

Warning: It's pretty epic

Electric Ireland put him up for the challenge, kicking it all off by tweeting: “@jamieheaslip if @properchurch convinces you to do your own #PowerBallads video, we’ve @EPfestival tix for all the @IRFURugby women’s team!”

Cian decided to take matter into his own hands, and tweeted back: “I’m doing my video tonight.. doubt rest of team will.. if I’m Good enough do the girls get a full set of tix?”

He was good enough, and they did get tickets, hurray!

Maybe if he makes it to EP too, Bonnie might let him jump on stage with her?!

See ye there, ladies!



Cian Healy and Holly Carpenter only broke up last month, but the Rugby star has replaced her already – with a puppy!

He shared a photo of the German Shepherd puppy on Instagram, and he is VERY cute (we mean the puppy! Although…)!

He hasn’t picked a name for the pooch yet, but says it will either be Hank or Tank, and he says “He’s a little beaut!”.

Awh – we love a man who loves dogs!




It seems that nobody is immune to break-up woes – even models and rugby stars.

Dublin model Holly Carpenter and Irish rugby ace Cian Healy have apparently called time on their relationship.

The couple had been dating for over two years after meeting at a community demonstration in Dublin in November 2011.

The split is said to have come as a big surprise to friends as the couple have an adopted dog together – a little pug called Teddy.

So sad!

Holly is said to have already booked a holiday to Spain with a model pal Jayne Higgins, who took part in the Miss Ireland finals last weekend. Holly won the title in 2011.

Well, let’s hope a girlie holiday will take her mind off the split!



This has to be the best selfie of One Direction’s Croke Park concert – if not the world!

Niall Horan took to Twitter to share a snap of himself posing with some of the band’s biggest fans in the shape of Irish rugby hunks Cian Healy, Brian O’Driscoll and Jamie Heaslip.

Niall posted the photo on Twitter with the message, “Had these legends at the show last night! Brian o’driscoll , @ProperChurch @jamieheaslip !the best selfie I’ve taken ever ! #kings”.

Cian Healy also shared his own snap of the lads on Twitter, and cheekily implied that Niall could take a leaf out of their book when it came to keeping in very….very good shape.

“We need to teach @niallhoran how to squat!!” he wrote, referring to himself and his rugby pals as “#ClosetDirectioners”!

We wouldn’t mind watching that workout!
