Daithi and bride-to-be Rita's New York New Year family bash
RTE presenter Daithi O Se rang in 2012 in style in the Big Apple.
The burly Kerryman celebrated Christmas with his future in-laws at their home in New Jersey as he marked the day with fiancee Rita Talty.
He flew over to America a week ago after finishing up with The Daily Show, which resumes this month, as he got to know his other half's family a little bit better.
Rita and Daithi enjoyed an American-style Christmas at home while also heading in to Manhattan to soak up some Yuletide atmosphere. The pair will walk up the aisle in Kerry on July 12 at a ceremony in St Mary's church in Dingle before heading back to the place they met, Tralee, for a rowdy bash.
And the romantic presenter recently revealed that the past year had been a cracker for him personally.
"This would have to have been one of my best years. I got engaged, The Daily Show is going great and another successful Rose of Tralee under my belt. Family and friends are all healthy so that's very important -- if I could have more years like this, it would be great," he said.
And as is to be expected he has high hopes for his wedding this year and wants it to be a "real Kerry wedding".
"It will be more an event, like a wedding festival," he continued.
"The party will start at about 2 o'clock on Friday and finish up on Sunday evening so we have a few surprises for people on the day, it should be really good fun. My future wife is from America so it's kind of limitless, the stuff she's coming up with."
