In one of those "small world" stories I recently made contact with a photographer from Castlebar who was taking photos of the Bourke (my in-laws) Gathering Event last month. Her name is Joy Heverin, and the reason I contacted her was that the photographer on the day of my wedding to the lovely Roma Bourke (13th September, 1986) was named Paul Heverin. The only copies of photos from our wedding are in our album - none hang on the walls of our house. I contacted Joy to see if she was related to Paul - sure enough, they are husband and wife. The good news was - she still had the negatives from our wedding.
So - I was able to order a new copies of my favorite photo from the day, and scan it for an electronic copy. In the photo I am 26 years old, while Roma is 25 - I have aged a lot faster than Roma!
