Glenties Notes on July 29th 2004

Miriam Ward and Declan Gallagher came from Philadelphia to celebrate their special day at home in Ireland. They were married in St. Connell’s Church, Glenties on Saturday 17th July 2004. Miriam is a daughter of Charlie and Kathleen Ward, Buncrubog, Glenties and Declan is a son of Michael and Mary Gallagher, Donegal Rd. Ballybofey. Fr. Nigel Ó Gallachóir C.C. Glenties officiated and celebrated Nuptial Mass. Her father gave the bride away and her sisters, Rose Langan, Lucielle Kelly, Carina Ward and a friend, Bethann Mc Pharland attended her. Leo Gallagher, the groom’s brother was his bestman and another brother Michael and two cousins, Conor Brady and Brian Gallagher were groomsmen. Chloe Langan, niece of the bride was flowergirl and Shane Bell, nephew of the bride and Gareth Culloo nephew of the groom were pageboys. Readings were by Pat Ward, brother of the bride and Sheena Culloo, sister of the groom. Adam Langan, Ryan Ward, nephews of the bride, Brendan and Aisling Gallagher and Amy Martin nieces and nephew of the groom read Prayers of the Faithful. Lisa Mc Gill read a Reflection after Communion. Both mothers brought the Gifts to the Altar. The reception was held in the Highlands Hotel, Glenties and the honeymoon was spent touring Europe. The happy couple will make their home in Philadelphia.
