Another win for G-Mac - Darren Clarke to re-marry

Darren Clarke is to remarry, giving Graeme McDowell yet another “win” this year. McDowell set his fellow Ulsterman up on a blind date with former beauty queen Alison Campbell. Result.

According to his management company ISM, the 42-year old Ulsterman proposed to former Miss Northern Ireland Alison Campbell on Monday night and got the answer he was hoping to hear.

Darren and Alison have got engaged! Darren popped the question just before model agency boss, Alison Campbell, started her company’s festive celebrations in Belfast yesterday evening.
Darren met Alison just over a year ago after Northern Ireland’s Graeme McDowell played Cupid and set them up on a blind date. Since then there’s been no looking back and the pair are blissfully happy and looking forward to spending Christmas with their families in Northern Ireland, where Darren is now based since moving back home from London in August this year.

According to the Belfast Telegraph:

The couple first started dating last year, with the jet-setting sportsman fuelling speculation he was thinking of settling down with his new love when he made a permanent move back to Northern Ireland earlier this year. After a decade in London, he set up home on the north coast and enrolled his two young sons, Tyrone and Conor, in a local school.

For the Dungannon man, the proposal marks a happy new chapter in his life following the tragic loss to breast cancer of his first wife, Heather, who died in 2006.
