RTÉ television presenters Gay Byrne and Kathleen Watkins married in Saggart Parish Church on 25 June 1964.

Gay Byrne had been presenting 'The Late Late Show' for two years and Watkins had been one of the first presentation announcers when Telefís Éireann went on air on New Year's Eve 1961.

Over a thousand well-wishers crowded into the south Dublin village to catch a glimpse of the wedding. Guests included Eamonn Andrews and his wife Gráinne. After the ceremony, Gardaí escorted the couple to their car. The wedding reception was held in the Downshire House Hotel in Blessington, Co. Wicklow.
