    DUBLIN (Reuters) – Irish-born actor Pierce Brosnan, the current film incarnation of British super-agent James Bond, will marry Keely Shaye Smith on August 4 in the west of Ireland, newspapers reported Monday.

    The couple have opted for a Roman Catholic church ceremony to be followed by a reception in Ashford Castle in County Mayo, one of the top 50 hotels in the world, reports said.

    Widower Brosnan, 49, twice postponed the wedding to Smith, 36, last year after his teenaged son Sean suffered spinal injuries in a traffic accident.

    Brosnan, born in Navan, north of Dublin, is believed to have signed a six-figure contract with Hello magazine for exclusive pictures of the wedding, reports said.
