A long-running bitter family feud resulted in Hollywood superstar PIERCE BROSNAN not inviting his seven Irish first cousins to his big wedding. The cousins - all on his later father TOM's side - were not asked to the glitzy bash in ASHFORD CASTLE.
Cousin PIERCE WALLACE says, "He has made it very clear over the years that he doesn't want anything to do with us. I got kicked in the teeth. But I still wish him well. "
Brosnan claims dad Tom walked out on he and his mother MAY when he was just a toddler - a claim denied by Tom's family. The couple married in Navan in 1952, but separated two years later when Tom moved to London to find work as a carpenter.
Brosnan always said he was abandoned by his father, but Tom's relatives claim he made several attempts to contact his son. (RXT/ISM/NFA)
