The couple first got together in 2018 after meeting on a night out in London where the 2015 Miss Universe Ireland winner was based. 

Friends and fans of the rugby ace were quick to congratulate the pair on their engagement with plenty of well wishers sending them love on Instagram. 

Ireland rugby player Bundee Aki said "Gwaaan" while Conor's teammate Rory Scannell sent his congratulations to the love birds.
