Big Day on the way for Karen and Sean

A very romantic man is Sean O'Connor - despite the cold, he sat up at the St Brendan's statue in Fenit and waited for his girlfriend Karen McCarthy to arrive to propose to her, complete with ring and a rose.

Karen and Sean met through mutual friends and got engaged on 4 January. It was a total surprise for Karen but Sean had it all arranged with Karen's mom Helen.

He had booked a table at the West End and then waited at the St Brendan statue at the pier - the place where they had their first date.
