Family: Mother Peggy born Margaret Sweeney January 30th 1943 in Swinford,
Ireland. Peggy married Noel's father, Tommy Gallagher who was born in
Duleek, Meath, Ireland, on March 27, 1965.
Noel's brother Paul Anthony was born first (nicknamed Bod for his burly
size) on January 11, 1966. Noel's younger brother William John (nicknamed
Liam) was born on September 21, 1972.
In April 1984, Peggy took her three boys and left Tommy who is an
alcoholic known for his violent mood swings. Noel has not had any contact
with his father since then.
Marriage: Noel had planned to secretly wed girlfriend Meg Matthews on
Valentine's Day in 1997. He figured that the media would be focused on his
flashier brother Liam's pending nuptials, and would therefore leave him
alone. But after Liam called his wedding off at the last minute, Noel
decided to nix his as well. Unlike Liam's large affair, however, Noel had
planned a quiet ceremony aboard a barge in North London, and had invited
only a handful of friends.
Apparently deciding a quiet wedding in the UK would be impossible, they
exchanged wedding vows at the Little Chapel of The West in Las Vegas,
Nevada, USA on June 5th 1997.
Their first child, a daughter named Anais, was born at London's exclusive
Portland Clinic on January 27, 2000, weighing in at a healthy 7lb 6oz. She
