Romantic Ryan back rambling with Rose

RYAN Tubridy is back in the arms of his Rose.

The RTE presenter was spotted walking hand in hand with Aoibheann Ni Shuilleabhain on Dun Laoghaire pier over the weekend.

An onlooker said the couple were out for a romantic stroll, quashing suggestions of a permanent split.

"They had big smiles for everyone they met," they said. "They looked together and happy."

Ryan (37) has so far stayed mum on his relationship with the former Rose of Tralee.

The pair were last photographed together at Gerry Ryan's funeral in May, but Aoibheann was absent from the presenter's side at a number of high-profile events.

Sources had said that Ryan's additional workload was putting pressure on their relationship since he took up the mantle at 2FM, continued with his Late Late presenting gig and penned a book about JFK's visit to Ireland.

Teacher Aoibheann used to remain in the green room in the studio of the Late Late Show while Ryan was on air, but she was notably absent for the current series.

But over the weekend, the pair were visibly affectionate and even stopped to chat to others on the pier.

Aoibheann (27) dressed in a leather jacket for the stroll while Ryan returned to his favourite attire of jeans and a dinner jacket.

Tubridy has two children with his ex-wife Ann Marie Power, they split in 2006.

The RTE host first plucked up the courage to ask out Aoibheann after interviewing her on his chat show in February 2009.
