match made in sporting heaven

There was further cause for celebration in the hurling heartland of Clare last Friday when Sixmilebridge celebrated the marriage of its own Marie Crowe to Laois footballer Billy Sheehan. Marie, a sports journalist with the Sunday Independent, and Billy were married in the local church by Fr Harry Bohan in front of a large gathering of family and friends. Given their huge love of sport, the big day was very much a sports-themed affair with a church full of current and former inter-county footballers and sports journalists. Among the guests were Kerry legends Mick O'Dwyer and John O'Keeffe, and RTE presenter Marty Morrissey, who spoke at the wedding reception later that day in the nearby Bunratty Castle Hotel.
