Ciaran Preston managed to upstage Hollywood star Liam Neeson when he asked his girlfriend to marry him before a screening of ‘Taken 3’ at the Brunswick Moviebowl on Friday.
Shortly before the film was due to start, a short video, made by Ciaran, was projected on to the big screen inside Screen One at the Moviebowl.
The video, which lasted seconds, showed a picture of the happy couple and read ‘Would there be Maria Irvine out there?’.
Seconds later and in front of everyone else inside the theatre, Ciaran got down on one knee and said “babe, will you marry me?” before placing the engagement ring on Maria’s wedding ring finger.
The audience inside cheered and applauded the happy couple.
Ciaran organised the whole thing with help from the staff at the Brunswick Moviebowl.
