The wedding of Orla Walsh and Michael Murphy recently took place in St Brigids Church. The bride who is the daughter of Michael and Dolores Walsh of Brandra looked stunning on the day. The groom Michael is from Longford. Chief celebrant was Fr Sean Conlon PP. A great day was had by all in the Manor Hotel, Abbeyleix and the weather even stayed good with plenty of sunshine. Best of luck and congratulations to Orla and Michael.
