Wedding Ceremony: Church of the Holy Trinity, Rathoath, Co Meath
Wedding Reception: Knightsbrook Hotel, Co.Meath
The wedding preparations in Raheny were well under way when when i got to Michelles mothers house. Nerves were kept at bay with the help of champagne and a few beers, whichever took your fancy.
However when i had set up in the church in Rathoat and found the lads over beyond in The Auld Stand champagne was taking second stage to the black stuff! Not that the lads had anything to worry about, because Fr Dan Joe O.Mahoney had everything in control and delivered a thoughtful and at time very humorous mass. The mass also featured a surprise for everyone when Thomas McElroy sang a beautiful version of “Lean on Me”.
After the lovely mass we headed off for the wonderful Knightsbrook Hotel in Co Meath where the newly weds were greeted by Caroline and the team for the day. By all accounts a lovely meal was had and the beer and wine was flowing well at this stage. Just before he got the speeches underway, best man Mark Kirwan had a surprise for his unsuspecting girlfriend when he asked her to stand up and the whole party proceeded to sing “Happy Birthday” !
After the speeches which included some heartfelt words from all quarters it was time to put the kleenex away and shake a boogie! The party lasted well into the early hours of the night.
