Newly Wed – Shirley Brosnan And Paul Hogan

hogan-weddThe prevailing gale force winds and torrential rain were totally ignored when Co. Limerick lovely Shirley Brosnan, (Ballingarry) and Co.Tipperary native Paul Hogan, (Horse and Jockey)  proclaimed their love for each other, in front of a large gathering of friends, in the church of Our Lady of the Immaculate Conception, Ballingarry, Co Limerick.

Following their wedding ceremony the new Mr and Mrs Hogan entertained their many guests to a sumptuous reception at the celebrated Fitzgerald’s Woodlands House Hotel, situated close to the beautiful, quaint village of Adare, Co. Limerick.

The happy couple chose Cuba for their three week honeymoon destination.

The couple, who are both active in GAA and political circles, first met at a GAA function some years ago and thus began their close friendship.

Best wishes to you both for a happy and prosperous life together, from all your family and many friends in both Limerick and Tipperary.

Interesting to note that the church of Our Lady of the Immaculate Conception, Ballingarry, Co Limerick, (Shirley’s Parish Church) and  the Cathedral of The Assumption, Thurles, Co Tipperary,(Paul’s Parish Cathedral) have something in common. The stained glass windows in both buildings are the work of  the renowned Franz Mayer & Co of Munich, and possibly date as early as 1866. Only six Cathedral churches in the republic of Ireland can boast ownership of stained glass windows of this quality and great beauty.
