Ruth's mother, Blathnaid, is a sister of celebrity chefs Darina Allen and Rory O'Connell while she is also somewhat of a food guru herself as she runs the successful 'The Business of Food' consultancy service. Ruth's father, Jimmy, runs the well-known Bergin's Jewellers on Main Street, Portlaoise.

Her brother Tim was part of the Ballyroan Abbey side that captured the Laois Intermediate and Leinster football titles in 2008 before going on to forge a career as a professional Rugby League player across the pond.

Rebeluna Cosmetics is a cosmetic brand based in Ireland and is owned by make-up artist, business-woman and mum of two, Lauren Cleare, from Birr Co. Offaly.
