A Cork couple whose love story began at Kent Station revisited the station on their wedding day today.

It was back in 2019, after a 15 mile road race taking them from Cork to Cobh, that Aisling Devitt and Donncha Long locked eyes as they sat across from each other on the train service from Cobh to Cork.

Over two years later, the happy couple stopped by Kent Station to take a few photos in the place where their love story began.

“Going back to the train station on the day we get married means the world to me,” Aisling said.

“The race started outside the train station on the day, and we ran all the way to Cobh.

“Donncha says he spotted me for the first time outside Cork train station and when I walked into Cobh train station, he saw me again and made it his mission to sit across from me”.
