Beloved mum-of-three drops dead ‘unexpectedly’ just hours after wedding
A husband has paid a heartbreaking tribute to "the sunshine of his life" after his wife "unexpectedly" dropped dead just hours after they attended a wedding together.
Kirsty Connor suddenly died after being "the life of the party" at the function in Ireland last Saturday (March 12).
Niall, who shares three children with Kirsty, said they had travelled from the UK to attend his cousin's big day, in what was their "first night out in so long".
He has since issued a desperate plea to the public in a bid to help bring his "beautiful" wife home so his family can lay her to rest, reports Belfast Live.
In an online fundraiser, he wrote: "I married my beautiful wife Kirsty 10 years ago this year and have spent 16 amazing years with her. We had three children together. Robyn, four, Darcy, three, and 22-month-old Sonny.
"We live in the UK. We came to Ireland on Saturday the 12th of March for my cousin's Kate's wedding. My wife unexpectedly died that night. We were supposed to go home to our babies Sunday morning.
"It was our first night out in so long. She was the life of the party that night but she was the sunshine in my life, everyday for 16 years."
He added that while he is "not the one to do this type of thing", as a widower and single dad he "needs all the help he can get".
Niall added: "As many of you know, I am not one to do this type of thing but now as a widower and a single dad I need all the help I can get to cover the costs of having her in Ireland, brought back home to the UK and the funeral expenses there too. Anything at all will help."

He went on to thank everyone for the kind calls and messages and paid another touching tribute to his wife.
"Kirsty was loved so much and touched so many people's hearts," he said.
The heartbreaking story has touched hundreds of people, who have donated over €26,000 (£21,788) so far.
"What a loss. A beautiful girl, wife and mother. Thoughts and prayers with the family," one person wrote alongside a donation.
Another said: "Such a lovely girl, met her as she was at our dinner table at the wedding. Thoughts and prayers with all the family in this sad time."
A third added: "Kirsty beautiful inside and out. A shining star, shine bright. Sending love to Niall and their beautiful babies. Thinking of your lovely mum. Sending love and hugs."
