Sun shines on Johnny for daugh­ter’s wedding day

Sunday Independent (Ireland) - Living - - FRONT PAGE -

WHEN your dad is Johnny Ro­nan, maybe he can have a word with God about the weather for your big day. And so it proved last week­end in Kil­ter­nan. Be­cause God (who wears his beard in a sim­i­lar style to the buc­ca­neer from Car­rick-on-suir) pro­vided Jodie Ro­nan with the hottest day of the year for her wedding to her beau, John Savage.

The Kil­ter­nan Parish Church on En­niskerry Road last Satur­day was the venue for this typ­i­cally un­der­stated wedding for fam­ily and close friends (among them: Guggi, Dave Ka­vanagh, Rob­bie Fox and the blush­ing Si­mon Car­mody Com­mu­nity them­selves.) In­deed, the wedding showed what a close-knit fam­ily the Ro­nans are (Johnny’s sis­ter Gill at­tended), to say noth­ing of at­trac­tive.

As my late mother would say, they are a very good­look­ing fam­ily. Mary Ro­nan, look­ing god­dess-like in a blue gown in the shim­mer­ing sun, looked more like Jodie’s sis­ter than her mother.

As for the fa­ther-of-the­bride, friends told me that Johnny never looked hap­pier in his life as he did last Satur­day, giv­ing his beau­ti­ful daugh­ter away. The sons — John Ju­nior and James — are the im­age of their fa­mous dad, too.

The re­ces­sion is of­fi­cially over now, as Johnny Ro­nan is smil­ing like his good old self once more, as you can see from the above pho­to­graph. An­swers on a post­card as to what Johnny is jok­ing about to his daugh­ter. “I prob­a­bly spent more get­ting my hair done than you, Jodie!”

Glad to have him back.
