It was recently confirmed that First Dates Ireland couple Aine Dunne and Gary O’Brian are officially an item. The pair met six months ago on the RTE 2 dating show, and their relationship has been going strong ever since.
Although Donegal native Gary is in the process of moving to Dublin, himself and his 24-year-old girlfriend are making the long distance work for the moment.
Speaking to the Herald Aine opened up about her feelings towards accountant Gary, admitting that they haven’t said ‘I love you’ just yet, but are hopefully headed in that direction. Gary has also taken Aine home to mammy and she’s a fan! How sweet?
“I’m very fond of Gary, I have to say. We haven’t said the L-word yet but I’m enjoying his company and we’re having great fun together. Long may it last.
“It’s been hard the past couple of months, him coming down here. He’s made a big effort. He was doing a four-hour drive every time.
“I’ve been up in Donegal a couple of times and they’ve all been so welcoming. I’m delighted he’s coming down to Dublin because it will be much easier.
“He was saying to me, ‘My mam has never been like that with someone I’ve been with before.’ I’m an easy-going person. I’m glad I gelled with his family because that was the most important thing,” she said.
Aww, young love!
