Kissing shocked my boyfriend -- Fair City flirt

FAIR City star Aoibhin Garrihy admits her kissing scenes can be too much at times for her family and boyfriend.

Her character, man-eater Neasa Dillon, is now locking lips with Finn, her third love interest since her arrival in Carrigstown a year ago.

While Aoibhin is "delighted" to be working on a new relationship plotline and no longer embarrassed about her kissing scenes, she admitted that her boyfriend was less pleased.

"It's true that he doesn't find it easy at times," she revealed, adding that she wanted to keep his identity private. "But he is very supportive.

"Initially it was a bit of a shock especially for my grandparents but I think they're getting used to the whole idea," she said.

Aoibhin hopes that flirty Finn will help her character as she recovers from her late partner Turlough's death.

Neasa was left heartbroken after her fiance lost his life, but thanks to flirtatious Finn, she has been having fun and viewers saw her kiss Finn.

Castleknock native Aoibhin (23) is looking forward to a light-hearted storyline.

Her character's previous romance with Turlough angered her father Tommy. Their relationship ended when a broken mirror killed Turlough.

Meanwhile, Aoibhin will be starring in a play this weekend in Cork alongside her Fair City colleague Sam Peter Corry, who plays Robert Daly in the soap.

Stop/over is the story of two people remembering one fateful weekend they spent in New York ten years ago.
