MANY a Kerry girl's heart is set to be broken this weekend as one of the county's most eligible bachelors, Tadhg Kennelly, ties the knot in Australia.
The former AFL and Kerry football star is set to marry his longterm girlfriend, Nicole Noonan, at an intimate ceremony on Hamilton Island - the largest of the the Whitsunday Islands in Queensland.
The couple, who met shortly after the Listowel Emmets star moved to Australia to join the Sydney Swans in 1999, will marry in the All Saints Chapel on the island on Saturday afternoon, followed by a private reception at the exclusive Hamilton Island Yacht Club.
Tadhg's mother Nuala, sister Joanne and brother Noel have already made the trip to Australia for the wedding, along with one or two of Tadhg's closest friends from Listowel.
The Kerryman understands that the couple will return to Kerry in a few weeks for a post wedding party with Tadhg''s close family and relatives from Listowel, as well as his former Kerry team mates who helped him achieve his dream of winning an All-Ireland medal in 2009.
