It was a real family occasion when Bridget Casey and Shay Flynn got married in a civil ceremony in the County Arms Hotel in Birr on Friday February 17. From early morning that day Bridget and her sisters were organising every aspect of the occasion to ensure that everything went smoothly.

Flowers, cake (three separate tiers each a different flavour), decorations, entertainment, make up, hair and the white stretch limo were all sorted by the Three Musketeers - Bridget and her sisters Denise and Alison.

At 4pm on the dot Bridget and Shay said “I do” to great cheers from all, then it was on to the reception, very conveniently also in the County Arms Hotel!

Rock On Paddy Keating provided the entertainment - ably and eagerly assisted by all the wedding party. The bride was joined on stage by baby sister Alison for a song and the groom also graced the stage with his presence. The father of the bride Jimmy Casey is a renowned set dancer, so he had everyone up dancing throughout the evening.

On the day Bridget and Shay’s witnesses were Denise Casey and Padraig Flynn, while the couples’ three sons James, Liam and Sean looked lovely in their formal suits.
