A Monaghan football player swapped her wedding dress for football gear, after going straight from her reception to an All-Ireland semi-final.
Cathriona McConnell got married in the Slieve Russell Hotel in Co Cavan on Saturday and headed straight for the pitch in Donaghmoyne, Co Monaghan on Sunday.
She told Moncrieff they weren't thinking too far ahead.
"We didn't realise, we only realised when we got the fixtures at the start of the year that if we did make it to the All-Ireland semi-final that it would clash," she said.
"We were only taking one game at a time, so we didn't really think much about it up until we did win the Ulster final - then it was reality."
Arriving at her home ground by helicopter, McConnell said it was "a quick spin."
"I hadn't much time to think about it, we had a great day on Saturday and I didn't let the game impact the wedding," she said.
"We still enjoyed ourselves, I think it was 3.00 or 3.30 when we finished up Saturday night.
"When I woke on Sunday morning I was like 'Oh God' - a wee bit tired but there was a great buzz around the hotel and everyone was talking about the game.
"We just went out and we just gave it our all and I was exhausted at the end but it was well worth it".
McConnell said her new husband, and several guests, also made it to the game.
"He made it back over the road, he was at the game," she said.
"I think a lot of the guests from the wedding they all made it back over the road, they're all there supporting me the next day."
She said they are going to wait until after Christmas for their honeymoon "when I'm definitely sure all the football's over."
Donaghmoyne clinched a 1-11 to 0-7 win over Kilmacud Crokes and are heading to Croke Park for the final.
