“We got married last weekend and it was lovely. My new husband is a wonderful English man. I know a lot of people back in Donegal that I have lost contact with, would like to know of the happy ending to my tale of woe down through the years,” she said.

Marguerite split from former Government Minister Dr James McDaid in high-profile circumstances in 1998 and they divorced in 2005.
