Mum-of-two stunned Una Healy has been enjoying a sunny staycation in in Galway from where she has been sharing snaps of herself in a figure-hugging black swimsuit.

The singer has been posted pictures of her trip on social media, and included a video of her swimming at Dog’s Bay Beach.

Wearing a black halter neck swimsuit, with a gold buckle detail, the Tipperary native captioned the post: “#staycation #connemara #ireland.”

The 39-year-old has been dating during the pandemic and although she tried dating over Zoom during lockdown last year, but it didn’t work out.

“I did one Zoom date about a year ago – we actually sat down and had dinner with each other through the computer screen,” she revealed.

“It was so weird! Like, how weird is that! It was funny, but you know that’s not real… it’s not reality.”

“Even talking to somebody on an app, or texting them, you need to meet them in person.”

“You can’t tell if you actually have chemistry with somebody by texting them, you have to be face to face,” she explained.

“It can be a false illusion that you get on great by text, and think you have a great thing going, but then you meet them and there’s nothing there! And it’s awkward; there is no way to get out of if you are on a walk or something.”

Una was previously married to Ben Foden, with whom she shares two kids – Aoife Belle, 9, and Tadhg, 6, but she split from the rugby player in July 2018 after six years of marriage, amid claims he was unfaithful.

The singer went on to date former Limerick hurler David Breen, but that relationship ended in early 2020.

A year ago the singer packed up the belongings from her home in England, put her children into the car and drove on to the ferry that would take them back to her home in Ireland.

“I love being home” she declared.

“It was the perfect decision at the right time for me, to come home. I still work quite a bit between the UK and Ireland and the flights are more difficult at the minute.

"But I always said I’d move back to Ireland eventually and when the first lockdown happened, I was completely on my own, just me and the two kids.

“I was home-schooling and I was finding it very tough not having anyone else around me and not having support and help with childcare.

"My mum is an amazing help to me and for years she used to fly over to help me but she couldn’t because of the pandemic. I just thought, I can’t be here on my own like, I just want to move home. So it was a no-brainer. I moved back last July."
