PICS: Irish rugby stars jet to Dubai with model girlfriends after Grand Slam win

Conor Murray and Rob Kearney whisked their ladies off for a lavish holiday


Irish rugby stars Conor Murray and Rob Kearney have whisked their model girlfriends off to Dubai, following their Grand Slam win.

Limerick native Conor invited new girlfriend Joanna Cooper to join him on holiday, while Rob was joined by his long-term love Jess Redden.

The couples jetted off after Conor and Joanna finally confirmed their relationship on Instagram, after weeks of speculation.

Since landing in sunny Dubai, Joanna and Jess have been sharing some envious snaps of their lavish holiday on social media.

All of the lights ????????????????????

The WAGs seem to have grown close since Joanna started dating Conor.

The news comes after Goss.ie exclusively reported that the pair were indeed dating, after the former Miss Universe Ireland attended the Six Nations rugby match against Italy, and was spotted at the official Six Nations reception party.

The blonde was seen at the match during the day, and then partied with the players and their other halves at the official reception.

In a picture posted to her Instagram stories, Joanna could be seen dancing with Johnny Sexton’s wife.

“Conor always wants to keep his love life as private as possible, but everyone knows about Joanna now,” an insider told Goss.ie at the time. “It’s a big deal to bring her to the Six Nations reception.”

Ironically, Joanna won Miss Universe Ireland back in 2015, the same year Conor’s ex Shauna Lindsay was in the competition.

Joanna is currently based in London, where she keeps up a busy modelling career.

Meanwhile Jess also works as a model, but is studying to become a pharmacist at UCD.
