Wexford woman takes the leap and proposes to her man live on air

A standard listeners call turned into the surprise of a lifetime for James Murphy when his girlfriend proposed to him live on the radio.

Wexford woman Joanne Leacy, from New Ross rang in to the South East regional station, Beat 102-103 for a standard request call but ended up asking the biggest question of all live on air.

Presenter Emma Nolan was completely surprised by the proposal and we are pretty sure James got a bit of a shock too!

James was driving at the time of the call, but thankfully said yes to the million dollar question, even though he had no time to phone a friend.

The couple have been together for a number of years and have a young daughter Caoimhe.

With 2016 being a leap year, according to old Irish tradition it is a year for women to take matters into their own hands and propose to their man.

After the shock proposal, presenter Emma Nolan rang back the happy couple some time later.

James said it was a "big surprise" and had no idea it was coming.

Their little daughter Caoimhe also took to the airwaves to share her excitement with Beat 102-103 listeners.
