Model Karena hooks up with ruggers abroad
SHE'S planning a move to Los Angeles and in the meantime, model Karena Graham is sunning herself in Portugal.
The AR blonde has joined up with a string of Leinster and Irish rugby pals in the Algarve and is spending her time partying with the sports stars.
Karena (27) is a keen fitness fanatic and happily showed off her toned, tanned arms while dancing in the sand in Quinta do Lago alongside pals Ian Madigan and Jordi Murphy.
Ian and Blues team mate Jordi are holidaying in the popular spot with Luke Fitzgerald and are regularly seen at beach-side bar Julias - often frequented by A-list celebrities - enjoying cocktails.
After 13 years, Karena feels she is ready to say goodbye to modelling when she sets up home in Hollywood.
The blonde is eager to swap her high heels for trainers full time - and is training to become a Pilates instructor.
"Modelling is a great job and I'll do it as long as I can here, but over in the US I want to focus on different things," she told the Diary.
