Rory McIlroy spotted in Dublin with Irish model/singer Nadia Forde (gallery)
It looks like Rory McIlroy has completely moved on following his tumultuous breakup with Caroline Wozniacki, as the 25-year-old golf superstar was spotted out and about with Irish singer-model Nadia Forde during a night out and about in Dublin over the weekend.
McIlroy reportedly made a pit stop in the bustling Irish capital while on his way to the Scottish Open following a practice round at Royal Liverpool in advance of the British Open in a few weeks. Along with some chums, McIlroy was seen spending some time with Forde, whose friend, model Katie Larmour, just so happens to be engaged to Harry Diamond, a friend of Rory’s. Sounds like a setup.
The Irish papers of course were all over the story and The Independent chronicled the golfer’s outing with Forde and friends as follows:
According to sources, the pair were spotted looking cosy in House nightclub on Leeson St in Dublin last Saturday night, after Rory spent the day at the Dubai Duty Free Derby races at The Curragh.
The pair, who have denied they are dating, were seen in the trendy bar with a large group of mutual friends.
According to sources: “Rory’s group had about 15 lads with them and there were a few other girls as well. But Rory and Nadia were chatting all night.”
“They were sitting together and laughing and joking. They really didn’t care who saw them.”
The pair reportedly left the club together around 2am, and got into a chauffeur-driven Mercedes which was waiting outside.
McIlroy hasn’t commented on the rumors of a possible “rebound” fling, but Forde denied rumors last month that the two were an item.
Given that McIlroy allegedly split with Wozniacki so he could better focus on his career probably means that this outing was a chance encounter at best, a mere fling at worst (insofar as it relates to Rory remaining dedicated to getting his golf game back on track).
Then again, Forde is a fetching lass (below) and McIlroy, a young man who appears to enjoy his activities away from the course as much as relishes winning on it, just might find himself powerless to the gorgeous young lady’s charms.
Either way, the rumors that McIlroy already is back on the dating scene probably won’t sit well with Miss Wozniacki. And we all know the saying about how hell hath no fury like a woman scorned…
Moving on, here’s a gallery of Miss Forde in order to get better acquainted with the young lady:
A real beauty. But if the two ever end up being a couple, here’s one piece of advice for Forde: Don’t take any phone calls from Rory while he’s on the road. Ever.
