Dragon Sean seals his biggest deal to marry gorgeous Trish

DRAGON'S Den star Sean Gallagher has signed on the dotted line after tying the knot with sweetheart Trish O'Connor.

The leading Irish entrepreneur celebrated the happy occasion with family, friends and fellow Dragons' Den judges Gavin Duffy, Niall O'Farrell and Bobby Kerr. Sarah Newman, however, was unable to attend.

At the ceremony -- which took place in Castlemagner, Co, Cork, over the weekend -- Cavanman Sean revealed how he met Trish, who is originally from Kanturk, Co Cork.

"I was giving an after-dinner speech down in Cork for the Costcutter chain, having been asked by the boss, Jim Barry," he said.

"His wife, Niamh, was sitting beside me at the table and when she heard I was single she said she had just the woman for me.

"She told me of her great friend Trish and how she was convinced we would hit it off if we met up. So she set us up to meet for coffee the next day and we got on brilliantly.

"I asked her out and it all went from there. That was only a year ago," he added.

The RTE star's best man was his long-term business partner, Derek Roddy, while his brother Gerry acted as groomsman. The beautiful brunette's dress was a special La Sposa Spanish design which she purchased in Drogheda at the Ophelia Bridal wear shop, her bridesmaid were her two sisters-in-law Sara and Eileen O'Connor.
