Although she is one of the busiest women in Ireland she admits that making time in her life for her relationship isn’t an issue.

As for how she and Mark met, well it’s a modern-day fairytale.

“I followed him on Instagram, his cousin is a producer in RTÉ and he was going to one of his stand-up gigs. I asked who his cousin was and he said Mark Mehigan,” she explains.
