Templetuohy Wedding Of Ciara & Jonathan

Ciara and Jonathan

The wedding took place recently of the very lovely Miss Ciara Gavin, daughter of Mrs Margaret and Mr Martin Gavin, Templetuohy, Thurles, Co. Tipperary, to Mr Jonathan Barrett, son of Mrs Geraldine and Mr Willie Barrett, natives of Co. Cork.

The marriage took place in the historic Church of The Sacred Heart, Templetuohy, Thurles, Co.Tipperary, with the ceremony  presided over by local parish priest Rev. Fr. Pat Murphy.

Escorted down the aisle by her father Martin, the bride looked stunningly beautiful in a white, strapless, chiffon and lace, afternoon gown, with full length veil. Equally beautiful were her accompanying bridesmaids, Martina Buggy (Maid of Honour), Denise Gavin, Patrica Gavin, Geraldine Byrne, and Tracey Kelleher, who wore full-length black, laced backed evening gowns, delicately adorned with white waist bands.

The groom, Johnathan, and his five groomsmen, Jeremy Murphy (BestMan), William Barrett, Brian Aherne, Keith Byrne and John Dorney all looked dashing in their black tail-coated evening suits, elegantly highlighted by white wing collared shirts and matching grey silk cravats.

Also adding to the splendour of the occasion were Flower Girls, Nicola Buggy, Emma Buggy and Linda Gavin together with Pageboys, Martin Ryan, Cathal Kelleher and Adam Gavin.

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 very talented Templetouhy Church Choir.

Following the ceremony, the new Mr and Mrs Barrett 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 dinner, which was followed by dancing to the music of popular Tipperary band ‘Rebel Hearts,’ very late into the evening.

The couple have chosen a short stay in New York followed by a Caribbean tour, as their favoured honeymoon destination.

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

  • We wish the Lovely couple, many years of health, and happiness. The Arch, is that across from the Lodge, (Longorchard ) between Buggys and Kellys ( Bergins ) Forge, which I passed daily going to and from School,(1938 -1948 c ) Memories, Happy new year, Peace.

  • Afraid not Seamus, This is the Arch in the Park in Templemore. It is somewhat similar, but you will remember Templemore Park with fondness, also, I am sure.

    Lovely Photo. I don’t remember you Seamus, I am a 1948 baby.
    The Arch you refer to is still there, I’m sure a lot of people in Templetuohy don’t know where it is or even know its there. Its one of the few remaining pieces of Longorchard House left apart from our Lodge.
    Best wishes
