Former Ireland international scrum-half Peter Stringer has proposed to his girlfriend of six years Debbie O'Leary in Barbados.

The couple are staying at five-star hotel Sandy Lane – the spot where US golfer Tiger Woods married Elin Nordegren in 2004.

Mr Stringer and Ms O'Leary have been travelling round Los Angeles and Florida for the past few weeks and stopped off on the Lesser Antilles Island en route back to the UK.

Ms O'Leary shared the news of her engagement with friends and family, admitting that while she was still in "shock" she was "very excited".

The former Cork model posted a picture of herself and Mr Stringer on Twitter alongside the words "So happy!"

And she has good reason – the model has been showing off an impressive diamond ring.

Earlier this year, Mr Stringer (36) signed a one-year deal with Bath having been at the recreation Ground since January 2013.
