A number of people commented below the post and said she was a “gorgeous bride”.


One of them wrote: “What a gorgeous bride! Are always beautiful btw! Happy birthday to you two x.”

Another added: “Happy birthday, 25 years later and still so beautiful.

“The next 25 will be even better, without a doubt the best is yet to come.”

Someone else said, “Happy Silver Wedding Anniversary. Wishes and many more together.”

Mary Lou and Martin have two children and are deeply deprived of family life.


Last week, Sinn Fein joined TikTok in a bid to connect with young voters.

They announced their adventure with a 60 second clip featuring some of the biggest names in the party.

Mary Lou, Vice President Michelle O’Neill, Finance Spokesperson Pearse Doherty, Housing Spokesperson Eoin O’Broin and Former President Gerry Adams all appear in the short video.

Announcing the switch to TikTok, a spokesperson for Sinn Féin said, “We take a different approach to the platform than most politicians.

“We join TikTok as a party and celebrate the work of our team across Ireland to find solutions to the day-to-day issues facing voters in the North and South, instead of focusing on individual personalities.

“We know from our regular engagement with young people that they care deeply about issues, politics and how activism can build a better and fairer future for them.

“So we want to use the platform to engage with young people on the issues that matter most to them and to listen to their ideas on how to shape a better society.

“That said, we also know that the platform is also designed for fun and a little lightness! So rest assured that we will also wholeheartedly accept this. “
