Tributes are pouring in for a woman who tragically died on a holiday to Prague, with her boyfriend calling her the "most beautiful and sweetest girl".

Daire Ni Heidhin, from Dundalk in Ireland, is understood to have been rushed to hospital after becoming unwell and passed away last Saturday in the Czech capital.

The boyfriend of Daire, a 29-year-old early years childcare practitioner at Little Partners Creche, said it felt like a dream which he can't escape from, reported the Irish Mirror.

He wrote online: "I can’t believe I’m even writing this I just feel like I am stuck in a dream and I can’t get out of it.

"Babe you have made me the happiest man that I never knew I thought was possible for someone to feel. There was not one moment in the time we had that I never felt like the luckiest and most loved person in the world from the very first time we laid eyes on each other.
