Miriam O'Callaghan and daughter Alannah McGurk

The Vow

Miriam O'Callaghan's daughter Alannah McGurk engaged to Fiachra Breathnach

It looks like Miriam O'Callaghan will have a big day out. No - not when she inevitably moves into Áras an Uachtaráin one day.

The RTE current affairs goddess's big day out will be eldest daughter Alannah's wedding to boyfriend Fiachra Breathnach.

I can't reveal as yet the date, but I can tell you that Alannah and Fiachra got engaged on April 3 in Dublin.


The beauty, who swapped modelling to become a top barrister, looked besotted in the picture posted on Facebook of her and her husband-to-be. Indeed he looked besotted too.

Someone who knows Fiachra well described him thus: "He's a very nice guy. Played football for Galway."

I might go further and describe him and his fiancée as Love's Young Dream incarnate.

Naturally, I wish Alannah and Fiachra every happiness and lots of parties before the big day to celebrate their good news.
