I love weddings around Christmas time and was looking forward to this one for ages! Coleen and David were travelling back to Ireland from their new home in Denmark to tie the knot.

Bride Coleen Fitzpatrick hails from Mullinalaghta, in Co Longford who recently won the GAA Leinster Club Championship making history as the first Longford club to ever achieve this. An amazing feat for a small rural townland. However on 20th December 2018 the excitement wasn’t about football it was time for the wedding of Coleen and David!

Groom David Greaney got ready at the nearby Piker’s Lodge just over the County divide in Cavan. He was helped by Best Man Ronan Joyce and Best man Michael O’Donoghue before heading to the Church.

Back over in Mullinalaghta Collen was with Helen Perry as Maid of Honour.

Fr Michael Bannon officiated at the nuptial Mass at St Columba’s Church. Photographer for the day was Paul McGinty of Ghorm Studio in Donegal.

After the wedding it was over to the beautiful Slieve Russell in Co Cavan and after the meal the excellent Vertigo Band took over and kept the lively crowd going for the night.
