Shane Lowry has revealed why he decided to skip Rory McIlroy’s lavish wedding at the weekend.
Rory married Erica Stoll in the idyllic surroundings of Ashford Castle, Co. Mayo, on Saturday, and while the happy couple were joined by a whole host of famous faces, Shane opted to spend time with his family instead.
“My granny was 80 on Saturday night, so we had a birthday party for her at home,” he told Sean O’Rourke on Today FM. “Family comes first.”
Shane continued, “It was at Esker Hills Golf Club on Saturday night, so we were there. We had a great night.
“She’s still flying at 80 years of age, which is great. She has 13 kids and almost every one of them were there.”
