Top model Sinead Noonan jets to South Africa to visit her beau
Model Sinead Noonan has jetted to South Africa to visit her rugby boyfriend Maks van Dyk.
The former Miss Ireland met the South African rugby player when he was on a two-month loan deal to Leinster late last year.
Maks (23) has since moved back to Johannesburg where he currently plays as a prop forward for the Central Cheetahs.
Sinead visited him last month during which she met his friends and family and the visit obviously went well as she's heading over to visit him again this weekend.
The 27-year-old is signed to Andrea Roche's Model Agency and regularly appears on Ireland AM sharing behind-the-scenes snaps of her with her fellow models.
The Meath native is also a qualified beauty and skin specialist.
"I think it's really important to have another skill because I probably won't be still modelling when I'm 90," she recently told the Diary.
"Beauty isn't something that's a million miles away from what I'm doing now anyway and it's nice to have another option, I might open my own clinic in the future."
Sinead also has a personal trainer to help her maintain her enviable figure.
"I train at Access Gym in Raheny and my trainer Jocelyn is amazing and makes sure I keep up my sessions," she said.
Calling all foodies
Ireland's foodies take note. Celebrity chef Kevin Dundon has partnered with Hellmann's mayonnaise to create a Dollop-a-Day recipe book.
The book is filled with bespoke Irish recipes which all feature a dollop of mayonnaise.
A free download of the e-book can be found at the Hellmann's Facebook page.
Under My Bed play
Following a sell-out run in January 2014, which raised over €13,000 for children's charity Barnardos, Under My Bed returns to Smock Alley Theatre from March 12-14.
Under My Bed invites well-known people from all walks of life to tell us what was under their bed as a child.
These stories are then woven into a patchwork of childhood stories, presented by either themselves or some of Ireland's most talented actors.
Tickets for the play are €22 and are available from www.smockalley.com.
