... was to be held (a magnificent old bank that looks like Gringott’s), and I was very impressed. The wedding mass was held at the Brunker’s home parish of St Bridgid’s in Belfast, and the church building itself is distinctive. It was built about 20 years ago, and has won a number of architecture awards. It is a large church, but maintains quite a cozy, warm feel, and the organ at the back is superb.

'Because people get killed there.'
'Wow,' I said, 'we just walked all the way up there.'
