Kilkenny Hurling star Padraig Walsh ties the knot in beautiful winter wedding

Kilkenny hurling star Padraig Walsh and girlfriend Ciara Connolly have tied the knot in a stunning winter wedding in County Clare

They were surrounded by their close friends and family, as well as a number of big names from the world of GAA and Camogie in the luxurious Armada Hotel in Spanish Point in December.

Kilkenny legend Tommy Walsh and Shane, both padraig's brothers were all present on the day. Grace Walsh, his sister, who plays Camogie for Kilkenny was bridesmaid and shared images of the occasion on her Instagram page.

GAA favourite Cillian Buckley was there as was Padraig's cousin Miriam Walsh, winner of Player of the Year. Former Galway Camogie star Aislinn Connolly was also on the guest list

Rinville Park in Galway was the scene of the proposal which is particularly fitting given it's close to Ciara's family home. His sister Grace was on hand to help him pick out the ring.

The Tullaroan man previously told RSVP Magazine: "I had been planning it a while and my sister Grace helped me out. We only picked up the ring a couple of days before the proposal so we left it late. Luckily it all worked out in the end."
