The fashion had changed and the duo had become a quintet but the look of love between Paul and Patricia Kehoe was unmistakable as they celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary last week.

The couple who live in Ballyhit, Broadway married in The Church of the Holy Name, Fishguard on September 4, 1965 went on to have three children, Stephen, Kevin and Bronnagh and seven grandchildren.

The couple married by Patricia's cousin Fr Tommy Pierce and the best man was Paul's brother Richard while the bridesmaid was Patricia's sister Jacinta.

Last week the couple celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary exactly 50 years after their wedding and Patricia said it was a great night.

'Fr Nolan celebrated Mass in Tachumshane Church first and then we went to Meyler's, We had a great evening. Bronnagh organised it all for us and we had family and friends at it then Tommy Murphy played music. My two sisters Jacinta and Sheila and my brother Paddy and his wife came over from Fishguard for it and my sister in law Miriam was at it too.

'My sister Mary couldn't come because she was unwell so we prayed for her at Mass.'

Patricia is originally from St Ibar's while Paul hails from Tomhaggard.The couple met in the Golf Club in Rosslare when Paul was home from London but after meeting Patricia he never went back! The couple celebrated their wedding with a replica of their original cake made by their daughter in law Caroline complete with the original cake decorations.
