Not only does the big responsibility of being best man lie in the hands of Dara, but he was also the man behind organising the stag.

And like any 8-year-old knows, the best way to celebrate is by going to see The Ninja Turtles with a big bag of popcorn.

“They went to the secret cinema across the road from Brooks Hotel to see Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, there was about 12 of them on it”, Mairead revealed this morning.
