A Spring Wedding For Kathleen And Derek

The wedding took place yesterday in pleasant Spring weather of the very lovely Miss Kathleen Cosgrove, daughter of Mrs Anne and Mr Rodger Cosgrove, Killaloe, Co. Clare, to Mr Derek Ryan, son of Mrs Peggy and Mr Pat Ryan, Borrisoleigh, Co. Tipperary.

The wedding ceremony took place in the picturesque Church of the Sacred Heart and St Lua in Garraunboy, presided over by  priests and family friends, Rev. Fr J. Grace, Rev. Fr P. Malone, and Rev. Fr L. Everard.

Wedding of Kathleen and Derek

Escorted down the aisle by her father Rodger, the bride looked breathtaking in a slim A-line ivory evening gown with pleated skirt and full embroidered bodice.

Equally beautiful were her bridesmaids, Patricia O’Connor and Mary Cosgrove, both attired in full-length ‘Mermaid’ green, halterneck evening gowns.

The groom, Derek, together with his two groomsmen Seamus Farrell and Noel Ryan added further to the splendour of the occasion, dressed in dark grey evening suits, light grey waistcoats, and white wing collar shirts with silk cravats.

Also assisting the bride were Flower Girls, Ciara O’Connell and Tracey Burke.

The couple publicly declared their love for each other in front of a large gathering of family and close friends, while music and song for the ceremony was performed by extraordinary talented friends of both families.

Following the ceremony, the new Mr and Mrs Ryan retired to the popular wedding venue, the The Lakeside Hotel and Leisure Centre, over looking the picturesque towns of Ballina and Kilaloe, on the banks of Lough Derg, where guests were entertained to a champagne reception, together with a full assortment of other light refreshments.

Following family photographs in the beautiful grounds adjoining their chosen venue, the newly married couple joined their guests in the hotels Banqueting Suite, where a lavish dinner was enjoyed by all, followed by live music and dancing very late into the evening.

The couple have chosen the Mediterranean Island of Malta as their favoured honeymoon destination.

To Kathleen and Derek go the good wishes of all their families members and many friends here in counties Clare and Tipperary, for a happy, healthy and prosperous life together.

My very special thanks to hotel receptionist Lynsey Molloy, employee of the Lakeside Hotel, Killaloe, for her kindness on the day.
