Romantic Al throws down gauntlet to his countrymen
Who says romance is dead? Certainly not Sara O'Neill after her boyfriend, internationally known surfer Al Mennie filled a lagoon with flower petals and proposed to her in a candlelit cave.
It was certainly a gesture to win any girl's heart and Sara was totally bowled over. Al also has given the traditionally staid Ulster male something to think about. Going down on one knee after a meal out just doesn't have the same ring about it as a dawn proposal at one of the locations for TV series Game of Thrones. So there's the challenge for all you young men wanting to woo your beloved – can you top Al's romantic way of popping the question?
