Gorey Guardian - - NEWS -

GOREY na­tive Billy Dun­can and part­ner Ash­ley Kerby from Canada em­braced their roots by hav­ing an old Scot­tish tra­di­tional wed­ding. THE pair met in Italy nine years ago through a Pipe Band week­end. At the time, Billy played with the Ark­low Pipe Band, while Ash­ley, who lived in Scot­land at the time, was part of a Scot­tish Pipe Band.

NOW liv­ing in Canada the last six years, it turns out af­ter some ex­ten­sive research the Dun­can and Kerby fam­i­lies both orig­i­nate from Scot­land. ‘ASH­LEY moved back to Canada six years ago, and Billy fol­lowed her over,’ said Billy’s fa­ther Billy Dun­can. ‘They have been to­gether since meet­ing in Italy which was nine years ago.’ THE cou­ple got mar­ried, dur­ing an out­door cer­e­mony, on Satur­day, Septem­ber 15, in Canada. Billy, his fa­ther, and the best man and grooms men all dressed up in old Scot­tish wed­ding cloth­ing for the cer­e­mony.
