A Londonderry-based guitarist from rock group Snow Patrol has announced he is marrying a Hollywood star.
Johnny McDaid, from the Scottish-and-Northern Irish band, has revealed he is to wed Courtney Cox.
Cox had appeared in a succession of movies, but is best known for her long-standing role in the American sitcom Friends.
She was previously married to US actor David Arquette.
SDLP Foyle MP Mark Durkan is friends with the McDaid family, and congratulated the musician on his engagement, saying: “Johnny is a modest man, but very proud to be a son of Derry. Derry is also proud of him, his talent, achievements and personality.
“I am delighted for him on this happy announcement and wish them all the best for the future”.
