Rugby star O’Driscoll’s big day excites village

A small village is preparing for Ireland’s celebrity wedding of the year — even though it's six months away.

Irish rugby captain Brian O'Driscoll and actress Amy Huberman are due to tie the knot in Leitrim this summer, sparking a flurry of excitement among local businesses.

The couple will hold their reception in Lough Rynn Castle hotel in July, but there has been much speculation about where the actual wedding will take place. Now the tiny village of Aughavas is said to be “buzzing” with excitement that the couple will marry in the local St Joseph's Church.

Parish priest Fr Sam Holmes said that Brian and Amy “may be considering four to five churches around the Mohill area” and that St Joseph's was one of them.

The couple have been dating since early 2007 and got engaged in March 2009.
