Marty and Maria Whelan celebrate 35 years of marriage

RTE legend Marty Whelan and his wife Maria are celebrating 35 years of marriage together.

The pair wed back in 1985, after almost 10 of years dating.

Celebrating their coral anniversary, the two enjoyed a romantic weekend in Dromoland Castle Co. Clare.

Sharing some snaps from their celebrations, Marty said on Twitter:

“Loving the spender of @dromolandcastle to celebrate our special wedding anniversary. Such friendly staff too, what an experience.”

The pair first met in 1974, when Maria and Marty attended a Clontarf disco named the Grove.

During their 35 happy years of marriage, the two have gone on to have two children together, Jessica and Thomas.

The two are proving that they’re still as loved up as they were 45 years ago when they first met, with Marty recently telling the Irish Mirror:

“I leave RTE wanting to go home and see Maria”

“It works because you make it work and as I’ve said before, not every day is rosy; it can’t be, but what you do is that you work on the relationship.”
