MEET CLIFF HENRY and Fiona O’Hehir.

Cliff wanted to propose to his girlfriend Fiona. So he approached Dublin band Keywest – as they were busking on Grafton Street – to give him a hand.

He asked them to play Fiona’s favourite song, On Raglan Road, as the couple went for a walk on Killiney Hill on her birthday.

Then, Cliff would pop the question.

(Cliff also wore a GoPro on his chest – he told Fiona he was testing it for work – and enlisted a secret camera crew posing as tourists on the hill.)

Here’s how the proposal unfolded:

Oh, and they also ran into Bono and Ali Hewson on their walk. The U2 frontman had some helpful advice for the couple…

Ah no. After his little joke, Bono told them that:

Marriage is like an act of grand madness. You jump off the top of Killiney Hill and discover that you actually can fly.

Keywest shared the video on their YouTube channel and on Twitter.
