FIVE YEARS AGO Fiona Doyle put an ad on Daft to rent out a room in her house, this summer she married her ‘lodger’.

She told that she realised she liked Mike about two months after he moved in.

“We went on our first date after living together for about four months.

“In one way it’s very funny – we never had to decide when to take the next step and move in together.”

The couple got married in Killarney in July. Fiona said there were plenty of jokes at the reception about how Mike will never see his deposit again and how Fiona set the house rules from the start.

The pair are still living in the same house where they started out as lodger and landlord.
