Wire' star Dominic West and his Irish fiancee Catherine FitzGerald officially tied the knot in Glin County Limerick yesterday--and for good measure christened two of their three children right after the wedding ceremony.
West, who played Irish American detective Jimmy McNulty in the popular series said he was 'incredibly nervous' when he arrived for the ceremony.
His bride is the daughter of Desmond FitzGerald, the 29th Knight of Glin, a hereditary title dating back to the 14th century. It is as close as Ireland comes to nobility.
The couple had their wedding reception in the grounds of Glin Castle which had been specially spruced up for the occasion.
The couple, who have a three-year-old daughter Dora, christened their two younger children, Senan (2), and Francis (1), at the wedding chapel
“I feel so excited, really happy, really thrilled. It’s a fairytale,” said Catherine who arrived in a horse-drawn carriage.
Her father, Desmond Fitzgerald, the 29th Knight of Glin, walked his daughter down the aisle.
The couple met at Trinity College in Dublin in the early 1990s where they were both studying literature.
Tom Wall, who is the head gardener at Glin Castle, told the Irish Times preparations had been intense.
“We’ve been terribly busy here at the castle for the last few weeks doing all the last-minute preparations trying to get everything ready, especially the gardens, after the closing of the hotel 18 months ago,” Wall said.
