WATCH: Man proposes to Irish Rail driver girlfriend as her train pulls into Pearse Station

2020 HAS had a happy ending for one Dublin couple as they got engaged to rounds of applause and cheers from commuters in Pearse Station yesterday evening.

Paula, who works as a train driver with Irish Rail, was pulling into Dublin's Pearse Station last night when she got the surprise of a lifetime.

Her boyfriend--now fiance-- was waiting on the platform for her, with a sign asking 'Will you Marry Me?' while music blared in the background.

The shocked woman brought the train to a stop before stepping onto the platform, where her husband-to-be got down on one knee and asked the all-important question.

The magical moment was caught on camera by midwife Clodagh Maher, who posted it to Twitter alongside the caption:

"Didn't think anything could perk me up after a busy 13hr shift, and some gent goes and PROPOSES to his GF driving the incoming train at Pearse Station!"

Clodagh also captured images of the moment the happy couple embraced after Paula accepted her partner's romantic proposal, with Irish Rail staff and commuters among those gathered to cheer them on.

Tagging the images as #PearseProposal, the newly engaged Paula found Clodagh's Tweets, and wrote:
