Surprise proposal using drone in stunning backdrop of west Cork goes viral

A COUNTY Cork couple have embarked on an exciting new chapter of their lives together in a unique way.

West Cork romantic Blue Cassidy decided he wanted to propose to his long-term girlfriend, Brazilian woman Maria, and wanted it to be a moment she'd never forget.

He enlisted the help of his friend, photographer Niall Duffy, to assist with a imaginative surprise proposal set in the spectacular scenery of rugged West Cork.

Blue and Maria headed down to the clifftops at Dooneen, where Blue had told Maria they would be taking part in a tourism video to help a friend advertise staycations in the area, The Irish Examiner reports.

But instead, drone operator and photographer Niall Duffy of West Cork Photos dropped off an engagement ring via drone to the happy couple-- and caught the romantic proposal on camera.

The beautiful moment was captured on film, as Blue grabbed the engagement ring from the drone, got down on one knee and proposed to Maria on a picnic blanket on the edge of the cliff, surrounded by some of the most spectacular scenery found in Ireland-- and Maria, of course, said yes.

Niall shared the clip on his Twitter page, and the romantic moment has been picked up by outlets across Ireland and beyond.

For now, the couple are planning their wedding and the rest of their lives together-- and if the magical proposal is anything to go by, it looks like Maria and Blue will certainly live a happily ever after.

Congratulations to the happy couple!
