Katie Walsh cleared another hurdle today as she tied to knot with long-time partner and trainer Ross O’Sullivan at a sundrenched ceremony in Kildare.

Well-known Kildare trainer and RTE racing pundit Ted Walsh was on hand to lead his daughter down the aisle at St Brigid’s Church in Kill.

Katie swapped her more commonly sported mud-splattered silks for a full-length ivory dress, with a diamonte encrusted high neck, which showcased her toned figure.

Katie received a round of applause as she arrived from a group of local well-wishers as the biggest names in national hunt racing turned out for the joyous event.

Her famous jockey brother Ruby Walsh was busy ordering her to pose for snaps, while her good friend and now sister-in-law jockey Nina Carberry was sporting a sling over a collarbone injury she hopes will heal in time for the Galway Festival.

Her sister and jockey agent Jennifer Walsh and friend Sarah Ann Madden were bridesmaids, while the best man was amateur jockey Andrew Duff.

The couple will go on a short holiday to Barcelona for their honeymoon before Walsh returns for the Galway Festival.
