SINEAD O'Callaghan's fiance Brian Hart Brian Hart is a former racing driver and engineer with a background in the aviation industry. He is best known as the founder of Brian Hart Limited, a company that developed and built engines for motorsport use.  is a class act. And that's a fact.

So it is hardly surprising when Sinead says he has been the only person for her since she was a 16-year-old schoolgirl.

And as far as she is concerned he really is one-in-a-millennium.

Now the childhood sweethearts Sweethearts may be:

 until others said it that we realised."

But electrician Brian really was switched on the day he decided to propose to Sinead - a year to the day tomorrow.

She said: "I'm still getting over it, even after all this time.

"It was the most brilliant engagement any girl could have dreamed of.

"We had both been working very hard and Brian calmly suggested to me that we should get away to Glendalough for a couple of days just relaxing and doing nothing.

"I packed my bag with lots of sweaters, jeans and heavy boots, thinking we would be doing a lot of climbing.

"I even suggested that we stay the first day in Dublin to do some shopping and then head off for Glendalough the next day.

"The next morning I couldn't believe it when he woke me at 5am and told me to get ready.

"I was still half asleep when we arrived at Dublin airport Dublin Airport (IATA: DUB, ICAO: EIDW), or Aerfort Bhaile Átha Cliath in Irish, is operated by the Dublin Airport Authority plc. Located in Collinstown, in the Fingal part of County Dublin, it is by far the busiest airport in Ireland and is ranked as 14th .

"I thought at first that we might be going to London but suddenly we're on a plane to Paris.

"All I could think of was I had nothing to wear other than jeans and sweaters.

"Then exactly at midnight he took me up the Eiffel Tower Eiffel Tower, structure designed by A. G. Eiffel and erected in the Champ-de-Mars for the Paris exposition of 1889. The tower is 984 ft (300 m) high and consists of an iron framework supported on four masonry piers, from which rise four columns uniting to form one , dropped to one knee and asked me to marry him.

"Wow! What a way to get a proposal and in romantic Paris.

"He certainly did that but, then, he is always coming up with lovely surprises like that.

"He reckons we both work extremely hard - he has his own electrician's business and is working day and night establishing it so he looks on any free time as top-quality time and wants to make the most of it.

"I have to say I like his style and it is easy to see why I love him so much.

"I could never see the reason for going out with someone else. When I was about 19 I thought maybe I should be going out with other fellows, but then honestly couldn't see why when I was so happy with him. How right I was."

 were "waking up smiling with the sun, my grandmother to be alive, to float up the aisle like a princess, Brian waiting for me like a prince, a perfect wedding ceremony and to be happy forever".

She said: "So far our plans have been going well, although I'm not going to really start until after Christmas.

"The main things have been booked such as the reception in Kilmurry Lodge for about 100 people.

"We're also building our dream two-storey home. At least Brian, with the help of his brother Alan, uncle Eugene and my dad, Pat, are hard at it.

WE bought a piece of land just outside Limerick and the family very kindly are working terribly hard getting it ready.

"It is tough as they all work during the day up to 5pm and then head out to work on our home.

"I can now see the shape of windows and doors so it is coming along. Naturally, I can't wait until it is finished.

"I must say I feel so lucky when I think of Brian and myself.

"Life really is wonderful with so much to look forward to."
