Colin Farrell flies to Dublin for gay brother's wedding blessing

Colin Farrell was best man at his brother's wedding in Canada over the summer, and he'll be in Dublin for the Irish celebration.

The gay brother of Irish Hollywood star Colin Farrell is celebrating his wedding in a ceremony next weekend. Eamon Farrell is having a blessing to mark his union with artist boyfriend Steve Mannion.

According to the Irish Independent, the pair actually got married in Canada this summer, with Colin as Eamon's best man. At the time Eamon lamented the fact he and his partner could not wed in Ireland.

"We have to get married abroad. It's absolutely terrible. We have to go somewhere legal, which narrows it down to about five countries," he said, according to Perez Hilton.

At least they can have an Irish party. After the wedding blessing the couple will spend the evening with a host of well-wishers in Krystle nightclub, a funky venue on Harcourt Street in Dublin. The club has private booths, a pent house and a VIP suite – ideal for accommodating the VIP party.

It will be a family night out, including Farrell’s mother Rita and sisters Claudine and Catherine, the Independent reports.

A gang of other Irish celebs will be there too. And of course, Farrell is flying in from LA to join in.
