Newlyweds get to the polling booth on time!
Beautiful bride Sarah Clare wasn't about to let anything prevent her from voting in the presidential election on Friday - not even her wedding.
Sarah from Ballynultagh tied the knot with her partner of nine years, Joe Sinnott from Monaseed, Gorey, and made sure to do her civic duty while en route to their wedding reception at the Ashdown Park Hotel.
Sarah was joined by her parents, Mary and Cyril; her five sisters - maid of honour Marion and bridesmaids Theresa, Anita, Ailish and Anna - as well as her brothers Thomas and James, who were groomsmen for Joe, at the courthouse in Shillelagh as she cast her vote.
Son of Peig and Mick Sinnott from Knockbrandon, Monaseed, Joe and his family were joined by his new bride as they cast their votes later in the day at Monaseed National School..
There was also another cause for celebration as Joe turned 28 on the same day.
Public health nurse Sarah and Joe who is a farmer and also teaches in Creagh College, Gorey enjoyed a wonderful wedding ceremony in St Finian's Church, Kilquiggan, before their reception in Gorey.
The newlyweds will be taking a few days to relax in Ireland after the celebrations, and are planning a honeymoon next year.
