vinny gets engaged in New york

Congratulations are due to Kodaline rocker Vinny May who popped the question to his girlfriend - and she said yes!

The drummer (inset) proposed to his long-term girlfriend Carina Elliott in New York.

He took to Twitter to break the happy news and seemed somewhat relived that she agreed.

Together with a picture of the gorgeous diamond ring he wrote, "Well she said yes! Thank f**k! #engagement"

The rest of the band also sent their best wishes to the loved-up couple.

"Congratulations to Vinny who has just proposed to his lovely lady Carina Elliott in New York," Kodaline tweeted.

While in New York, the happy couple strolled through Times Square and posed for photographs with Mickey Mouse.

The band have had to cancel their US and Canadian tour recently after bassist Jay Bolan broke his wrist in "a silly accident".

But last week the band were announced as the headline act of the New Year's Countdown Concert in College Green.

The Dublin rockers will be joined by Little Green Cars, James Vincent McMorrow and Walking On Cars.
