Earlier this week, listeners to the Ray D’Arcy Show on RTÉ radio heard about a couple getting married tomorrow in a Limerick Registry Office.
The couple are not telling their families and one of them wrote to the programme asking for two witnesses to join them tomorrow so that their wedding could go ahead.
The email stated: “Hi Ray, I am really hoping you can help me. My partner and I are getting married in Limerick registry office this Friday at St Camillus’ Hospital unbeknownst to our family and friends. It’s on at 2.30pm. The two witnesses we have are now unable to join us on Friday. Is there any chance you might have two listeners free on Friday afternoon for approx an hour or less who could help us?
They just have to be over 18 and need to bring ID that’s shows their date of birth (passport or driving licence). Many many thanks in advance. P.S. please do not mention my name in case family or that is listening”.
After the message was broadcast, there was a great response from the listeners and the production team came up with two witnesses, Karen and Jim.
However magician Keith Barry was also in the studio and he is scheduled to be in Limerick tomorrow. He said that all going well, he’ll be at the wedding too!
“I’m in Limerick tomorrow. I’ve a mad schedule but if I can do it, I will turn up and be a part of the ceremony,” he added.
