Gabriel Byrne has tied the knot in a secret ceremony in Cork

Our very own Gabriel Byrne has married his long term partner Hannah Beth King in a secret ceremony in Cork two days ago.

And we missed it!

Gabriel and Hannah tied the knot in Ballymaloe House on Monday.

The news of the surprise nuptials broke this afternoon when the actor’s friend and politician Mannix Flynn, was first to publicly congratulate the couple.

“I want to congratulate both of them and wish many years of great togetherness and happiness, that’s fantastic news,” Mr Flynn told Liveline on RTÉ Radio One.

Gabriel, aged 64, has been dating film-maker Hannah for the past number of years and has described her as "lovely, intelligent, and beautiful, absolutely beautiful".

No pictures or details of the wedding have been released, but when they do we’ll let you know!

Congratulations to the happy couple
