A tragic bride-to-be whose fiancé was killed in a car accident on the morning of their wedding has told how she has been blessed with a “miracle baby”. 

Myles ‘Miley’ Harty died in the early hours of the day he was due to be married to Kate Quilligan when his car tragically smashed into a pole.

Now, one month after the tragedy, Kate from Thomondgate in Limerick has said the baby she is carrying is a gift from her late partner “who couldn’t leave me on this earth alone”.

The 20-year-old posted on social media: “One month in heaven today my angel. You broke my heart for the first time ever one month ago when god called you to heaven.

“What I wouldn’t give to spend one last day with you.

“You were my everything and more. I still can’t accept that you’re not coming home to us baby you knew I needed something to get me threw the bad days and that’s (why) you blessed me with our miracle baby.

“I knew you wouldn’t just leave me so you left me a part of you. I’m so happy that I will be able to hold onto a part of you for the rest of my life.”

Kate said they shared a “love like no other and even death can’t break that. Our love is soo strong nothing will break it,” she added.

“I love you forever and a day baby, until we meet again, my brownie you were too good for this earth. God really proves he only takes the best when he took you. I love you my brownie.”

Myles was laid to rest on August 24 after he died instantly when the car he was a front-seat passenger in left the road and hit a pole, at around 1am, at Cragmore, on the morning of August 21.

In an earlier post Kate wrote she could not “wait to get my baby in my hands”.

“You only ever gave me the best and you’re still blessing me with the best,” she posted. “I promise baby I’ll do you proud and do the best I possibly can. Love you and our miracle baby on the way. I’m always going to have a piece of you now, my Miley. Love you and our prince or princess on the way.”

An American steel casket containing Myles’ remains was driven to the church in a black hearse, behind a sulky.

Family members walked with a banner, enshrined with photographs of relatives, and which read “RIP Miley, You Are With Your Family Now”.

Mourners, including Kate, wore white t-shirts emblazoned with a photograph of Myles, which read “R.I.P. BOSS”.
