The pair have been together since 2009.

Kellie Harrington tied the knot with long-term girlfriend Mandy Loughlin in Dublin over the weekend.

The Olympic boxing champion shared a stunning image on Twitter of the intimate ceremony, which took place in The Old Spot in Dublin 4. In the image, the happy couple are joined by their beloved dogs.

“In a world where ye can be anything, just be yourself,” Kelly wrote in the caption.

The venue also shared photos from the wedding on Instagram, adding that it was “such a pleasure” to host.

One shot of a table at the reception shows each guest being given personalised bars of Cadbury Dairy Milk and Guinness pint glasses.

Among the guests was Soda Blonde singer Faye O’Rourke, who described the day as the “most beautiful wedding of all time”.

Kelly and Mandy have been together since 2009, having first met when training at the same boxing club in Bray. Mandy also previously competed at a high level in the sport.

In a previous interview on RTÉ Radio One, Mandy said she never thought she’d even strike up a friendship with Kelly at first, as they’re from different sides of the city.

She told Ryan Tubridy: “I suppose it’s just such a difference – a north inner city girl and a southside girl might just not get on straight away but opposites obviously attract and it was the best thing ever.”

The two previously announced their engagement in late 2021. At the time, Kelly told her Instagram followers that they were less than prepared for their upcoming wedding.

She said: “Wedding planning for a wedding that is 3months away is definitely STRESSFUL. No venue, not a stitch of clothes not knowing who to invite or where to bloody start.

“When people said planning a wedding is stressful I never believed it till now.”

Tagged Mandy, she added: “Working under pressure is what we’re used to I think?” she said.
