Who is Padraig McLoughlin? What we Know about Padraig McLoughlin
Hailing from Ireland, Padraig had spent several years as a ‘bedroom jammer’ discovering the catharsis of songwriting, whilst on occasion playing the local open mic nights in his hometown of Navan, County Meath. After moving to Dublin in the summer of 2015, he began honing his craft as a songwriter and playing various open stages and songwriter events across the city. A move to London then in 2017 saw a first visit to the studio and the recording of his four-track EP ‘Songs From Over The Years’. This was followed by a move to Berlin in early 2018 and thus began a shift towards the realm of street music, where he currently resides.

The Operation Transformation host, 40, revealed in May that they would be tying the knot in August – however, an official date has not yet been announced.
Speaking to VIP Kathryn previously said: “We finally have a date after three years.
“It’s in August and it’s in Ireland. We only decided in February, so when I say last minute, we are very last minute.

Padraig McLoughlin Background

Restauranteur Padraig is the owner of various top restaurants across the country – with over 25 years in the business.
The businessman owns various popular eateries including Dublin restaurants Catch 22 on South Anne Street and Union 8 on the South-Circular Road.
Speaking to Independent.ie, Kathryn previously revealed how the pair first met over a few pints in Dublin pub O’Donoghue’s.
She said: “I met him in O’Donoghue’s Pub and I just thought he was a ride.
“He was standing in the corner having a pint and minding his own business – it was one of those eyes across the room.
“We made eye contact and then I got really awkward and I hid behind the partition in the bar, but he persevered.
“I was single for three years at that point. I think timing has a lot to do with it. Before I just wasn’t ready.”
When Did the Couple Get Engaged?
The stunning couple got engaged back in November 2016 after Padraig popped the question at plush Ballyfin House in Co Laois – and it was apparently a very-low key affair.
The 40-year-old previously told the Independent.ie: “We were back in the room. I was there with the hair scrapped back, in a dressing gown and white slippers eating a pack of peanuts is when it happened.
“We had talked about it on and off for the last six months.
“I thought he was going to propose at Christmas last year so I shouldn’t have been surprised but I don’t think you’re ever ready for someone to ask you that.
“I bawled, I cried my eyes out. I didn’t think it was going to feel this special, but it is wonderful.”
