I like to watch the History Channel and Sky Arts, mainly. A bit of horse racing. I also like Match of the Day and Mastermind.
I switch between Lyric fm, RTÉ Tadio 1, Red fm and 96fm.
Probably Paul McCartney. Met him on Top of the Pops in 1993 as his dressing room was just across from ours. I’m a big fan of the Beatles so I was so excited to meet him and he didn’t let me down.
I’d like to go back to the 1950s to the night my mother and father first met in St Francis Hall Cork. I’d like to see how my mother and father were in their youth and I really like the 1950s era and fashion.
Elvis. Joy Division and Prefab Sprout.
I don’t have famous ancestors that I know about but I do find my siblings, my father and mother and my grandparents very interesting people. My family have a tradition of furniture making in the city since the 1950’s and continues today with Linehan’s Design in Grattan Street, Cork.
Mothers. The work mothers do is so enormous, words can’t come close to describing it. The sacrifices they make for their children and the hard work they do, day in day out is so admirable. Fathers get away lightly in comparison. When I see a woman with a large family I feel humbled.
