Shay a safe pair of hands as best man

You have to admire Shay Given. You'd think given (sorry!) the recent, and very sad, break-up of his marriage to Scottish stunner Jane, that the last thing on his mind would be another wedding. But the former Ireland international goalkeeper is nothing but resilient.

He will take on the role of best man at his friend Mark Devlin's marriage to Claire Christodulou on June 13 at the five-star Grecian Park Hotel in Cape Greco, in Cyprus. (For the record, Mark – who is the son of Ann and Pat Devlin, the manager of Bray Wanderers – and Claire met in Newcastle in early '09 and got engaged in September 2011 in Cyprus.)

Last Friday week, Shay attended his VBF Mark's swish and very understated stag soiree in 37 on Dawson Street in Dublin. Others in attendance included ex-Westlifer Nicky Byrne as well as Titus Bramble and Lee Cattermole of Sunderland Football Club.

Also in 37 that night (though not, I should point out, at the stag do) were Sharon Corr, Kian Egan, Kathryn Thomas – all speaking with one Voice, as it were – and Sile Seoige.
