Lions Lads Have Two Reasons to Party
Two rugby stars, Johnny Sexton and Paul O’Connell, had some of their team mates with them for their special occasions. Both of them gave the other lads a good reason to party too as Johnny got married and Paul had his low-key stag do in Lahinch.
What can one do for a stag do in Lahinch? Aside from partying and drinking, stag groups can golf away all day as this seaside resort is home to the Lahinch Golf Club which is a world famous golf club. More recently, the town also turned into a popular resort for surfing.
They had to give each other a pass as both occasions took place in one weekend. That also meant that the rest of the team had to go to either celebration.
Paul O’Connell’s Stag Party
Fans probably know that Paul and his bride-to-be, Emily O’Leary, have been together since they were twenty. In April 2010, they had a baby boy, Paddy O’Connell. In June 2012, the couple got engaged. Now, a year after, they plan to get married at the south of France later this month.
His fans would also know that Paul has been a supporter of Everton, Liverpool’s rival. For his stag do, he dressed up in a Liverpool 80s kit with a red jersey, shades, and a mullet. One of his groomsmen, Darragh O’Sullivan wrote “Liverpool’s latest signing” beside his pic. Those who know him probably had a laugh. Those who don’t know him will not really get the joke.
Johnny Sexton’s Wedding
Johnny Sexton married Laura Priestly last Friday afternoon. Laura is Johnny’s childhood sweetheart. They tied the knot at the Holy Trinity Church in Adare, County Limerick. After the celebration, they flew for that one-week honeymoon in Las Vegas. With a hectic schedule, the couple probably did not have enough time to have a stag or hen party.
The whole affair was quite romantic after Johnny revealed that two generations of his family got married in that place and that Adare was always close to his heart. After the ceremony, the wedding party was held at the Minstrel’s Gallery.
Paul and Johnny are team mates for both Ireland and Lions team. However, they already knew that they had to pass up each other’s special occasion as their schedule does not really give either of them a lot of free time. Both are busy as the Lions tour will be ending. Then, the domestic rugby season will be starting.
