Double celebration for newly-weds

A County Donegal bride had a double reason for celebrating on her wedding day at the weekend.

Mary O'Sullivan and Eoin Hamdam, who were married in Moville on Saturday, spent part of their reception watching RTE's Winning Streak programme.

When Mary won a place on the game show, due to be broadcast on her wedding day, she delegated her friend Ciara Ni Chleirigh to play for her.

The newly-weds had an extra reason to celebrate when Ciara won 32,000 euro for her friend.

The couple said they would have extra cash for their honeymoon in Budapest and the deposit on their new home.
