DUBLIN (Reuters) – James Bond star Pierce Brosnan is to marry fiancee Keely Shaye Smith in an Irish church that featured in the 1951 John Wayne movie “The Quiet Man” it was reported on Monday.
The Roman Catholic ceremony will take place at St. Mary’s Church in Cong, in western Ireland, in the grounds of the exclusive Ashford Castle Hotel where the reception is being held, the Irish Examiner newspaper said.
Widower Brosnan, the current screen incarnation of British super-agent 007, twice postponed the wedding to Smith, 36, last year after his teen-age son Sean suffered spinal injuries in a traffic accident.
Brosnan, 49, born in Navan, north of Dublin, is reported to have signed a six-figure contract with Hello! magazine for exclusive pictures of the August 4 wedding.
