Country music star Patrick Feeney reveals the sweet way he proposed to partner Claire

Love is most certainly in the air for country music star Patrick Feeney, who proposed to girlfriend Claire Hegarty last week.

Sharing their engagement joy, Patrick revealed decided to get down on one knee over the Easter weekend, after spending the last few months planning every little detail of the day.

“I knew about Christmas time that I was going to propose, but I didn’t want to do it then,” he told the Sunday World.

“I thought Easter would be as nice time as any. Claire had reminded me that she likes Easter eggs, so I got her a hamper of chocolates and cosmetics that she likes.

“We had a Chinese takeaway that night and then I gave her the gift. When she found the ring in the hamper I went down on one knee and asked her to marry me.”

It took Claire by complete surprise, but of course, she said yes without hesitation.

“She got a big, big shock. She definitely wasn’t expecting it, but she said ‘yes’ straight away. It never felt as right,” he beamed.

“I was never as certain about something in all my life in asking her. I had no doubt whatsoever and neither had she, thank God.”

Claire worked in a jewellers, so he knew she’d want to pick out her own ring. Instead of buying one she may or may not like, he got a costume ring and the pair plan to go shopping for the perfect one soon.

“I got in touch with her boss, Richard Wehrly, and told him what I was doing,” he said.

“With Claire working in the jewellery industry she knows exactly what she wants, so I thought I would leave it to herself to choose a ring. Richard organised a promise ring for me, which I then hid in the hamper.”

Friends and famous faces including Mike Denver and Cliona Hagan have shared their well-wishes with the couple.

We wish them continued happiness.
