Lisa heads to Galway on first of three hen weekends

The countdown to her lavish Italian wedding is on - and Lisa Cannon is on the first of her three hen weekends.

The Xpose presenter is enjoying a glam weekend with her close pals in Galway.

Lisa is set to marry her rugby player beau Richard Keatley in romantic Florence in September and will spend the summer celebrating with friends and family in the run up to their nuptials.

"I'm in a hummer dressed as a pink lady and we're heading over to Galway," she told the Herald.

"All I know is that we're heading to a castle. I've been kept in the dark about all the details but it's been hilarious already, we're having great craic.

"There's 15 of us altogether - it's all my close pals and some of them have flown in from London, Scotland and all over the UK, which is amazing.

"It's so nice for us all to be together and we've had such a brilliant time already."


The girls might also have started a new trend as they went to iNailz to have Richard's face put on their nails.

While she's having a medieval-themed hen in Galway this weekend, her Xpose pals also have something fun planned in the future, and Lisa is also hoping to head to Belfast with some of her family.

"We'll probably do afternoon tea at the Merchant - or something a little bit more classy," she said.

"I'm not having three hens as such, but I just couldn't meet with everyone at once."
