GOALKEEPER Richard Brush made the 'catch of his life' on the spectacular setting of a Mexican beach.
On Friday, November 23rd, he married his fiancee, Stacey McDonald, in Playa Del Carmen.
Their three-and-a-half year old daughter, Amelie, was flowergirl and 24 family and friends made the long trip to join them.
They included Stacey's parents, Pat and Catherine, and Richard's mum and dad, Lynn and Paul.
Sligo Rovers league winning captain Danny Ventre and central defender Gavin Peers were among the guests.
The ceremony took place in glorious sunshine and temperatures of 20 degrees.
The bestman was a Richard's friend, Ryan Menzies.
Stacey's sisters, Amanda, Deirdre and Vanessa were bridesmaids.
The bride wore a dress by Mikella from Elite Bridal, Letterkenny. Richard said: "It was a fantastic day. "Because of the soccer season we had to have the wedding late in the year.
"We picked Mexico and were delighted we did."
The wedding was organised by the Grand Riviera Princess Hotel.
Stacey said: "It was a great day and Mexico was fabulous.
"So much so that we intend to go back."
The newly married couple held a party in The Clarion Hotel on Saturday night as the celebrations continued.
