“I’m mother to a beautiful teenage daughter Eva, and in my spare time I can be found either relaxing on the couch with her watching Netflix or out for a shopping trip and having a nice meal!  I also love to meditate and walk in nature, and am very fortunate that I can do this where I live, along the banks of the River Shannon, which I enjoy immensely.”
