SHEUNA PIKE GOT quite a shock this morning when she brought her 11-month-old daughter Halle to see Santa Claus in Clerys.
Instead of meeting the jolly man from the North Pole, she was greeted by a much more familiar face.
When she entered the grotto, her long-term boyfriend Gary Lawlor was ready and waiting. In his hand? A sparkling diamond.
The Glasnevin man got down on one knee and proposed to Sheuna. The pair have been going out for about eight-and-a-half years.
