Padraig Harrington's son takes Lorraine Keane's daughter to Debs

There was a high-profile coupling up in Dublin on Friday as the son of major-winning golfer Padraig Harrington and the daughter of TV star Lorraine Keane stepped out together at their Debs ball,

Lorraine's daughter Emelia stunned in a baby blue frock while Padraig's boy Patrick looked sharp in a navy suit and subtly matched baby blue tie. Lorraine took to Instagram to share some snaps of her daughter with her date who she seems close with with the proud mum saying the pair "make a cut couple", RSVP reports.

Padraig and his wife Caroline joined Lorraine, her husband Peter and other family members to celebrate the pair's special day. Emelia's aunties Tori and Becky were roped in on hair and make-up, and her other aunt decorated the door and steps for a photo shoot.

"Our first baby celebrating her debs," Lorraine said. "A proud day for parents and grandparents."

Patrick, better known as Paddy, is a keen golfer like his dad and partnered him in a number of Father and Son tournaments. Meanwhile, Emelia dreams of becoming an actress and is starting a degree in drama, film and languages at Technological University Dublin (TUD).

She has already starred in BBC drama Ripper Street and a new short film about sexual harassment, The Least I Can Do. Lorraine previously told RSVP that she and her husband Peter are "lucky" that Emelia and their other teenage daughter Romy have always worked hard in school.

"They are very good, they are very focused, they put the work in and they want to do well and we know from experience that we can rely on them to pull their weight so we're very lucky in that way," she said.
