IT WAS a weekend to remember for Clare woman Clodagh O’Halloran.

After going over for a try in Munster’s victory on Saturday, Clodagh went down on one knee to propose to partner and teammate, Chloe Pearse.

And as family and their Munster teammates looked on, Chloe said yes.

It emerged afterwards that Clodagh had planned to propose if Munster beat Leinster.

Prior to to the game, the Kilkishen native told her parents about the proposal plan, asked Chloe’s parents and had informed Munster manager of the potential show-stopping end to Saturday’s Interpro clash.

“I just went straight over to Chloe and I did the job. I had a whole speech ready in my head but that didn’t happen because the girls were just erupting around us. I just mentioned that it as in front of our second family, which was all the girls with Munster”, Clodagh told the Irish Independent afterwards.

Dozens of well wishers offered congratulations after Munster rugby posted a picture of the on-field proposal on Saturday.

Chloe revealed she’s didn’t know anything about Clodagh’s post match proposal.

“Clodagh made a beeline for me in the circle and I was thinking, ‘why is she standing beside me ‘ because we’re always across from each other”, she said.

On the pitch, Clodagh scored a try as Munster held on for a 26-17 win over Leinster to make it two wins from two in the Interprovincial championship.

Munster will hope to celebrate Chloe and Clodagh’s engagement in style if they retain the Interpro title with a draw or victory against Connacht this weekend.
