Irish wedding

The country of Ireland itself has also played a significant role in McCartney’s life.

After Paul’s first wife Linda died from breast cancer in 1998, he met former model Heather Mills, and married her in an Irish castle in a $3.2 million wedding in 2002.

Elton John, Eric Clapton, President Clinton and fellow Beatle Ringo Starr were just several of the stars who witnessed McCartney and Mills exchange vows inside Ireland’s 17th century-built Castle Leslie in Glaslough, County Monaghan, Ireland, the county from which his mother’s family descended.
