Season 2 Episode 15 – The Cabra Girls

On this weeks episode I sit down with the stars of Gogglebox Ireland the Cabra Girls Lindsay, Ashley, Grainne and Jamie. 

They worry they have nothing to say but the conversation come easy with each of them as quick witted as the other. Their friendship is a force to be reckoned with and is a result of being truly there for each other through thick and thin. 

The girls talk about growing up in Cabra, Their no-nonsense mothers and nannies who with a gang of women would take them off every year to Pwllheli and the likes every year.

We talk about the loss of Ashley and Lindsays mother at a young age and the things she has missed out on through the years. 

We talk about how they joined the cast of goggle box Ireland and Jamie’s recent loss of her granddad during Covid.

I don’t think these girls realise how enchanting they actually are. Be prepared for a lot of laughs and maybe a couple of tears…

Season 2 Episode 14 Alison

On this weeks episode I sit down with Alison Murphy. Alison has the most infectious laugh but behind this laugh lies tragedy, while dancing away to the last song Alison’s sister Lisa fell to the floor and unfortunately passed away.

Alison tells me of their dysfunctional upbringing that lead to not only a break up between husband and wife but to broken relationships that will never be mended.

She tells me the effect of finding her fathers secret children and the impact it had on her own relationships. She tells me she would be lost without her family and friends and how her mother is her biggest supporter. 

Alison is a tonic, a warm hug as her friend tells me never whines never complains and just gets on with it being through so much but still can laugh and what a laugh she has.
