Ó hAilpín (38) performed a native Rotuma dance with his mother, Emeli, and his brother, Setanta.

Seán and Siobhán have been romantically involved for 15 years. Fijian-Irish footballer Ó hAilpín proposed during a romantic trip to New York in November 2014.

Siobhán went for a traditional satin wedding gown with a lace appliqué bodice and drop earrings.

Once the couple exchanged vows, they made their way to Rochestown Park Hotel, Cork, for the reception.

Ó hAilpín wasn't the first GAA star to wed this week, as former Kerry footballer Paul Galvin and Dublin captain Stephen Cluxton also married their girlfriends on Wednesday.
