Holly Sweeney, the former girlfriend of Northern Irish golfing superstar Rory McIlroy – he dumped her last year after falling for Caroline Wozniacki, the top-ranked women’s tennis player in the world – is still clearly in the mood for love.
Holly, also from the North, was in Dublin last week to promote the Valentine offerings from the grocery chain Lidl. She admits she’s single but still friendly with McIlroy, and that she’s not opposed to meeting a new suitor.

“When Lidl approached me to promote their Valentine's Day range I was chuffed -- the roses are beautiful and I adored the champagne. Any guys looking to impress me this Valentine’s can get themselves down to Lidl,” she said.
It’s not quite the life she had touring the world with McIlroy, but good for her that she’s back in the game!
