Fair City had an epic gay marriage proposal to mark the #MarRef anniversary

It included a flash mob.

THERE WAS A historic moment on Fair City last night, as the one year year anniversary of the passing of the marriage referendum was referenced in a very appropriate way.

But it came about in fairly gas circumstances too.

The whole episode was building towards Decco proposing to Kerri-Ann at the Ballintine

But just as he went to ask her, a man at the other end of the restaurant stood up

And started into his own proposal to his boyfriend

He then began belting out Lean On Me

And literally everyone in the restaurant got up and joined in – except Decco and Kerri-Ann

After the man got himself a yes, he sat down and apologised for ruining their evening

No need! He thought he had booked all the tables for the flash mob, so it was an easy mistake to make.

But then the moment had gone, and Decco couldn’t ask her

People watching at home were delighted for this new pair

What a way to celebrate the anniversary of the referendum


Could these two lads be regulars?

Although the flash mob aspect to it was a little cringe

But still, <3 conquered all in the end

Well played.
