Will and Niamh go public
APPRENTICE lovebirds Will McCreevy and Niamh McDonald made their first public appearance as a couple on Saturday night when they stepped out to Bucks Townhouse for an exclusive party to celebrate Will's 23rd birthday.
The Diary spotted the smitten reality stars hanging out in the venue's newly opened VIP area as they celebrated the milestone.
Dressed to impress in a designer dress, the show's runner-up, Niamh (23) explained how it was an enormous relief to finally have her romance with Will out in the open, after love blossomed for the couple over Christmas.
The chatty entrepreneur from Wexford went on to explain how Saturday night marked her first meeting with Will's father, who was also celebrating his birthday on the same night.
The high-profile couple explained how they were keen to keep the gathering low-key, with close friends and members of the businessman's close family in attendance.
The handsome pair are also close to fellow Apprentice pals Jamie Moran and his new girlfriend Michelle Massey, who was the one who pipped Niamh to the post when it came to the €100,000 contract with Renault boss Bill Cullen last year.
Meanwhile, Friday night saw 2fm star Ruth Scott mark her birthday in style with a host of big names from the RTE radio station donning their finery to toast the popular DJ.
Among the well known names who joined Ruth to blow out the candles on her big night were Jenny Heuston, Jenny Greene and Brendan Courtney.
