When you make your marriage vows, you promise to love each other in sickness and in health, and newlywed Harriet Beirne has thrown herself fully into her role.
Ireland fans were dismayed on Saturday to see her husband, Munster lock Tadhg, receive a serious leg injury in the second half of Ireland’s fantastic win over the French in the Six Nations.
He was seen being helped from the pitch, and afterward wearing a protective boot on the damaged leg with crutches for support.
Unfortunately, Ireland head coach Andy Farrell has admitted that the early signs were not good, but we’re all hoping for good news as he heads to a specialist this week to see the extent of the damage.
Taking to social media, Tadhg took the opportunity to wish his wife a Happy Valentine’s Day, but also to acknowledge how she’s helped him out since the injury over the weekend.
Along with a gorgeous photos of the smiling couple, he said simply ‘Happy Valentines @harrietbeirne, and my new full-time nurse’.
It’s not clear yet when Tadhg will be back on the pitch, but for now it seems he’s in good hands with Harriet.
The couple has moved relative mountains to be together, having met five years ago in Cardiff- just after Tadhg had moved back to Ireland after two years living and playing rugby in Wales.
During lockdown, Harriet left her native Wales to spend more time with her beau, as she moved to Ireland, and the smitten couple was engaged by Christmas.
They tied the knot in Kilkea Castle in the summer of 2022 surrounded by family and friends who had traveled from near and far once the pandemic calmed down.
