I guess from the beginning is as good a place to start as any. My parents met, married and multiplied. I had a happy childhood, at least the absence of any bad memories leads me to believe I did. Similarly the lack of any photographic evidence of me before the age of about 4 causes me to wonder did I have a toddlerhood or was I born at the age of 4? Around about the age of 7 we moved from the town of kings (Cashel, in case you’re wondering) to Borrisoleigh, where my father had opened a pub he had bought and renovated. For years I hated alchohol and drunks, I got over that though!.
