In a touching tribute, she said: ‘Vinny was an amazing fiancé, a loving dad and devoted family man. He was kind and helpful to everyone and nothing was ever too much to ask.
‘He loved his little boy to pieces, he doted on him and would always make sure his had everything.
‘He loved his music and would always sing to me and his little boy, he was always making jokes and was the life of the party.
‘He was from a big family in Ireland and had six brothers and seven sisters, and would always speak about their memories and his love for his dad Barney.
