England football star and World Cup player Conor Gallagher’s model girlfriend Aine May Kennedy has revealed she is stuck in a passport drama meaning she cannot yet fly out to Qatar to support the team during the tournament.
Images on Irish Ms Kennedy’s Instagram account seem to show that she has lost her passport and has had to apply for a new one from the Irish authorities, as she described as ‘the most stressful week’.
Ms Kennedy, 23, has so far been unable to join the rest of England’s WAGs on a luxury cruise ship off the coast of Qatar, where they are based due to coronavirus restrictions which prevent them from seeing their husbands and boyfriends.
She shared a photo on her Instagram story yesterday which appeared to show her holding passport applications, captioned: ‘Can’t believe it’s come to this.

‘Literally putting a tracker on my passport as soon as it arrives.’
She then shared a second image of a green wheelie bin, adding: ‘Had my friends empty the bins last night [Wednesday night] with me just to make sure we hadn’t missed anywhere in the house.’
Model and professional dancer Ms Kennedy finally shared an image of herself at a pool in White City House, saying: ‘We ended the most stressful week though with gorgeous views.’
Ms Kennedy has been dating Gallagher, 22, who plays for Chelsea, for nearly four years according to their social media posts, and the couple have shared many photos online showing their fans their close relationship.
Gallagher did not appear to have made any reference to his partner’s passport woes on social media this morning, but he did share a sneak peak of training for tonight’s World Cup match against the USA.
Ms Kennedy, who hails from Cork, travelled to London to become a professional dancer but quickly picked up a modelling career instead.
The partners of other British footballers touched down in Doha to support the Three Lions ahead of their 6-2 win against Iran on Monday – and the Welsh squad’s 1-1 draw with the US.

But away from the stadium, the WAGs shared photographs of themselves relaxing in hotels and waterparks – soaking up 26C days while the UK welcomes a grisly winter.
Jodie Francis, the fiancee of Wales player Chris Mepham, shared a glam photograph of herself relaxing by the pool in a chic all-black ensemble.
Amie Coady, 29, the wife of England’s Conor Coady, has also shared social media snaps of her time in Qatar, panning the glorious view from her hotel room.
The WAGs are staying on a luxury £1billion cruise liner, dubbed a ‘floating palace’, comes complete with six swimming pools, 30 bars and the tallest slide on a ship, while their Welsh counterparts are being housed in a hotel.
Guests will be living the high life, thanks to onboard beauty salons, boutiques, dodgems, 14 ocean-view Jacuzzis and the longest dry-slide at sea titled The Venom Drop to keep them entertained between matches.

Wives and girlfriends of the football stars will lap up the luxury of the swanky ship – complete with its very own shopping mall, roller disco rink and a range of clubs for children.
It comes amid reports that England’s footballers are isolating from their partners in order to prevent any possible spread of Covid-19, meaning the WAGs cannot visit the players’ hotel ten miles away in the Al Wakra resort.
Around a dozen wives and girlfriends have spent recent days on a cruise ship in Doha.
Covering 21 decks, there are 2,138 crew members, two five blade propellers and seven thrusters being four Bow and two stern.
Packages begin at £6,000 for the footballers’ families to stay on the luxury liner, with model Anna Modler, 24, who is dating defender Eric Dier, 28, also rumoured to be among them.
The ‘bubble’ rule has apparently been insisted upon by manager Gareth Southgate until the last group match is concluded next Tuesday, The Times reports.
The only respite came on Monday following England’s 6-2 win against Iran, when players walked over to their families in the stand.
