Monasterevin girl Helena Ryan made her dad Michael proud by pulling him a pint in his local on her wedding day last Thursday, March 3.

She stopped by their local, the town’s Bellyard pub, after she married Newbridge man Mark Whelan in St Peter and Paul’s Church.

“My dad likes his pint of Guinness, and I just thought it would be a great photo,” said the Kill Hill girl, who works as a care assistant in Moore Abbey.

Pub owner David Maher was happy to surrender the pump to the glamourous ‘barmaid’ for the special occasion.

The happy couple met in Swifts of Newbridge, and have two sons, Kian (7) and Conor (4).

The celebrations continued after the reception for 240 at Carlow’s Talbot Hotel with a Friday party at The Bellyard.

The couple are currently honeymooning in Tenerife.
