Colette Fitzpatrick – TV3 – Holycross Abbey Wedding

collette-fitzpatrickTV3‘s news anchor and Tipperary beauty Colette Fitzpatrick has confirmed she will tie the knot with fiance Niall McDermott at a ceremony in Holycross Abbey, Thurles, Co Tipperary later this year.
To be precise, the TV presenter and her Station Manager boyfriend will swap their vows in her parish church on May 16th next.

Colette and Niall  have been together since 2003.

The ceremony will be a small intimate event with ‘I dos’ being heard only by immediate family members and some very close friends.

The beautiful and ancient venue of Holycross Abbey has become the favourite hitching centre for marrying celebrates over the years and was also the chosen venue of Dolores O’Riordan of the ‘The Cranberries’ fame.

Colette’s engagement ring was purchased from Keane’s Jewellers, Oliver Plunket Street, Cork.

When asked how did Niall propose, Collette stated:

“I was rushing out the door on a Saturday morning and asked Niall to show me directions on my laptop. This wouldn’t be unusual because I have a terrible sense of direction. I sat down at the table and looked at the route on screen. He was hunkered down beside me. It was ten to nine in the morning. Then he asked me to open a minimised document and up popped ”Will you marry me” in big bold letters. I looked down and there he was on bended knee with a ring box open. I burst into tears and he had to say ”well, will you? ” And I said ”of course”. It was weird, I can tell you, especially seeing as it was so early in the morning and I had to rush off. We went for dinner in Fallon and Byrne that night and drank lots of champagne.”

Colette’s  wedding gown has been hand-made, especially for her, by the young Irish designer John McCormack. Latter, a former student of the Irish Grafton Academy of Dress Design, who won the Nokia Young Fashion Designer Award in 2005 with his capsule collection, which was inspired by the Guggenheim Museum building in Bilbao.
