Long Life And Happiness To The New Mr And Mrs Long

The historic Abbey at Holycross, Thurles, Co.Tipperary was the scene for the wedding, yesterday, of one of  Tipperary’s most popular couples.

"Good Health and Happiness"

The very lovely Miss Margaret Long, daughter of Mrs Christine and the late Mr Thomas Long, Holycross, Thurles, and Mr Evan Long son of Mrs Jacinta and Mr Matthew Long, Thurles, Co.Tipperary, both publicly proclaimed their love for each other in front of a very large gathering of friends and family.

The ceremonies chief celebrants were local parish priest Rev. Fr. Tomas Breen assisted by Rev. Monsignor James Commins.

This beautiful and ancient venue of Holycross Abbey has become the favourite hitching centre for marrying celebrates over past years and in recent times was the chosen venue of Dolores O’Riordan of the ‘The Cranberries’ fame and TV3’s news anchor Colette Fitzpatrick.

Following the ceremony Margaret and Evan entertained their guests in the wonderful gardens of the Anner Hotel ,Thurles, Co Tipperary, where over 200 guests enjoyed a champagne reception, combined with the first of this seasons fresh strawberries.  This was  followed later in the evening by a lavish six course banquet.

Music and dancing continued well into the early hours, and over the next  few days the happy couple will depart on honeymoon to tour Thailand.

Friends and neighbours in Tipperary send their best wishes to you both for a happy, healthy and prosperous life together and thank you both, most sincerely, for such a wonderful day.
