The Rose of Tralee witnessed a first tonight - a marriage proposal live on air.

Molly Molloy Gambel (23) was stunned when her boyfriend Kyle Catlett appeared on stage during the final in the Dome in Tralee.

He immediately dropped to the bended knee. His stunned girlfriend’s first reaction was to blurt out a series of “no,no, no” before finally saying yes.

Her boyfriend responded to his tearful fiancée “I’ve got tissues”.

To clarify matters, host Dáithí Ó Sé, asked her to confirm that she said yes and she said yes to thunderous applause from a packed dome.

Her mother was in the audience and in floods of tears while Kyle confirmed that he had already asked the father in advance of tonight.

Ms Gambel was born and raised in New Orleans and is a recent graduate of the University of Alabama where she received a BA degree with a major in public relations.
