Perfect match: GAA star weds childhood sweetheart

KERRY footballing star Declan O'Sullivan swapped the green and gold for a three-piece suit as he married his childhood sweetheart, Michelle O'Sullivan.

There was a huge Kerry football presence at the wedding of the couple, pictured above by Domnick Walsh, who met in secondary school.

GAA stars Daragh and Marc O'Se, Paul Galvin, Colum Cooper and Bryan Sheehan were among the Kerry team members who made an appearance.

Michelle looked glowing in a strapless gown and held a bouquet of white flowers. Declan donned a grey three piece suit with a striped tie.

The couple tied the knot in St Patrick's Church, Portmagee, followed by reception at Ballygarry House Hotel in Tralee.

The footballer enjoyed a weekend away from GAA duty as he was not involved in the clash against Cork in the McGrath Cup yesterday.
