Coming from an aristocratic family, Catherine Fitzgerald is the daughter of the 29th and last Knight of Glin, Desmond Fitzgerald. He died in 2011 leaving his Irish castle, which had been the family's ancestral home for 700 years to his daughter Catherine.

She is also married to Dominic West, who is an English actor, director, and musician who is more famous for his role, playing Jimmy McNulty in ‘The Wire,’ the American crime drama television series. They recently had to sell their castle because the finances were running high for the upkeep of the place she inherited from his father. 

However, Dominic soon realized that the castle meant very much to Catherine, who is a successful landscape designer, had taken care of the castle garden for more than 20 years. Even though the expenses were only escalating, Catherine and her husband decided not to sell it and keep the majestic place to themselves. 

Catherine Fitzgerald’s Marriage to Dominic West

Catherine and Dominic West tied the knot on 26 June 2010 in Glin Castle in Ireland according to the wiki. The ceremony was attended by many guests along with some of the co-stars from the popular series ‘The Wire’ where his husband is playing the role of Jimmy McNulty.

The wedding took place on the ground of the castle itself at the Church of the Immaculate Conception. The couple Catherine and West met when they were studying at Trinity College in Dublin in the early nineties. Though they were dating at that time, she broke off the relationship thinking they were not made for each other. According to the Irish Herald one of the local newspapers, her actor husband was even quoted as saying,

"She dumped me. I was either too immature or too stupid to make our relationship work."

Catherine went on to marry somebody else, and this was hard for Dominic West, but she divorced her first husband Ned Lambton in 2002. She was lucky that West still had a soft heart towards her even after her divorce.

Soon, the couple was back to start their old romance, and finally Dominic West proposed to her in 2007. The wedding was very beautiful and consisted of thousands of people, including the postman, the director and possibly everyone living around the Glen Castle.

They do have many things in common as a couple because, during college, she was studying English and History whereas West was doing English literature. They met before her husband Dominic West was getting into an acting career.

Together, they have four children—Martha West, Dora West, Senan West, and Francis West. The couple now lives together with their children in Glin village in West Limerick because Catherine believes that children will get a better existence there.
