I grew up in Carlow and there were four of us in the family. We lived next door to my Gran and Papa and we lived across the road from my cousins so we just had an incredible childhood. It was amazing because we lived outside the town, so we were constantly in the river fishing, running around fields and, basically, we just hung out with our cousins all the time.
My mom, at one stage, had ten students living in the house with us because money was tight and my Dad’s business was going through a difficult time. I remember she had ten students from Carlow IT so we were all living in one room in the attic and my mom was looking after and feeding them and us. Now, as a parent I go, how in the name of all that is holy did she do that?
