A Newry traveller has sensationally broke with tradition and decided not to marry his First Cousin it has been revealed.
Paddy Ward McDonagh Quinn O’Connor has said he is his own man and refuses to go with convention on the issue claiming he loves his 2nd Cousin instead.
Paddy told Newry Spud from his Bessbrook based Caravan:
“Look, I’m not weird or perverted or anything; I don’t really think its acceptable marrying my first cousin, but my second cousin, well, fair game.
I think it’s important to be your own man, so, I will be marrying Eileen my mother’s first cousin and my father’s sister’s mother’s cousin’s aunt. I can’t wait.”
