She now lives in Cnat with husband and two-year-old son, but makes frequent trips home where many of her best friends still live. Some of them have seen the first two episodes at a small screening we had in Derry- my parents and school friends.

They are all friends now - a real wee gang. They are lovely and so supportive of each.

One of my friends told her about it recently. I was sitting, at the age I am now, trying to explain to my mother about the time we had Sambucca in the house!
