CORK TD Donnchadh Ó Laoghaire has swapped exchanging views in the Dáil for exchanging vows with his long-term partner in an intimate ceremony in Kildare.
The Sinn Fein TD tied the knot with Dr Eimear Ruane-McAteer, a researcher at the National Suicide Research Foundation and UCC, on Thursday. They were married in a civil ceremony at the Cliff at Lyons hotel in Kildare, with just 25 guests, in adherence with the current Covid-19 restrictions.
The couple had already cancelled two previous dates in April and May.
Their ten-year-old son Sé was their best man, while their 20-month-old son Fiach was also in attendance.
