There were plenty of smiles in the sunshine in Berrings this afternoon as former Cork footballer and camogie star Rena Buckley married Freemount player Páidí Collins.

Naturally there were both footballs and hurleys in evidence on the special day of one of Cork's greatest ever players. 

The happy couple were joined by socially distanced well wishers as they posed for photos after the ceremony at St Mary's Church, including a number of former teammates.
