Wedding Of Margaret Bohan And Michael Burke

Mrs Margaret and Mr Michael Burke

The wedding took place yesterday of the very lovely Miss Margaret Bohan, only daughter of Mrs Noreen and the late Mr James Bohan, Graffin, Clonmore, Thurles, Co. Tipperary, to Mr Michael Burke, son of Mrs Alice and Mr James Burke, Granstown, Ballacolla, Co.Laois.

The wedding ceremony took place in the historic 19th century Church of St. Anne, Clonmore, Templemore, Thurles, Co.Tipperary, with the ceremony being presided over by Rev. Fr. Fintan Burke, ably assisted by Rev. Fr. Eugene Everard, Rev. Fr. Noel Maher and Rev. Fr. Seamus Bohan.

Escorted down the aisle by her uncle Thomas Bohan, the bride looked totally stunning in an ivory, brushed silk bridal afternoon gown, with a pleated and delicately sequined bodice. Equally beautiful were the bridesmaids, Anne-Marie Walsh and Theresa Carroll, who wore full-length navy, evening gowns delicately adorned with dusky-blue waist bands.

The groom, Michael, and his two groomsmen, both brothers, all looked dashing in their black evening suits elegantly highlighted by white wing collared shirts and matching dusky-blue silk cravats.

The couple publicly exchanged their vows in front of a large gathering of family and close friends, while music and song for the ceremony was performed by the talented harpist and vocalist Carmel Minouge.

Following the ceremony, the new Mr and Mrs Burke retired to the popular local wedding venue, The Templemore Arms Hotel, Templemore, Thurles, Co.Tipperary, where guests were entertained to a champagne and strawberry reception, together with other light refreshments.

Following family photographs in the beautiful manicured gardens of the Templemore Arms, the newly married couple joined their guests in the hotels ‘Belville Suite’ for a lavish feast, which was followed by live music and much dancing very late into the evening.

The couple have chosen the Spanish ‘red mountained’ island of Lanzarote as their favoured honeymoon destination, indeed it was there they became engaged on a previous visit.

“Margaret and Michael, from all your family and many friends in Co.Tipperary and Co Laois go best wishes to you both for a happy, healthy and prosperous life together and thank you both for such a memorable day.”
