Derry model Joanna toasts Ireland's win with Conor Murray

By Caitlin McBride

Irish rugby star Conor Murray has gone public with his Derry girlfriend Joanna Cooper after several months of dating.

The 28-year-old celebrated Ireland's Grand Slam victory on Saturday night in style, with his 23-year-old model girlfriend by his side.

The couple shared nearly identical pictures on social media at the weekend, marking his most high-profile relationship to date and what better cause than a stellar victory over England in Twickenham.

Their romance was first in the spotlight in February and Murray has been dating the former Thornhill College pupil for the last six months.

London-based Joanna recently signed with a top modelling agency in Paris.

Earlier in the evening, former Miss Universe Ireland Joanna shared pictures with Jack McGrath's fiancee, Sinead Corcoran. Sean Cronin was joined by his wife Claire, and Rory Best by his wife Jodie.
