Season 3 Episode 11 – Fiona

Trigger warning this weeks episode we talk about suicide.

On this week’s episode I sit down with Fiona Sheridan. Fiona talks to me about her Kieth

Kieth by all means was a wonderful man, he was the life and soul and a person you want to be around to have a good time but, Keith suffered with his mental health. His anxiety destroyed his life.

As a boyfriend and a husband he doted over Fiona and they traveled the world together and was always by her side. A breakdown and later struggles with conceiving, IVI and possibly IVF put huge pressures on them both and resulted in Keith dying before they had the chance to conceive.

There is no anger in Fiona, she knows now that Keith is free, she is consumed by the memories of Keith but won’t talk about what ifs. She is now trying to find yourself again going forward without Keith and their imperfectly perfect life.

Season 3 Episode 10 – Sabrina Hill

On this week’s episode, I sit down with Sabrina Hill.

Sabrina is one of the hardest-working people I know. She’s a business owner, a single mum and a TV personality but above all, she is a wonderful person.

I ask Sabrina about her life before Instagram, becoming pregnant on Aaron and why she got into hairdressing, and her journey to Kopper.  

Sabrina tells me about her ups and downs and how CBT therapy saved her life in her 20s and the lessons she has learned that have made it to the Sabrina she is today.  We talk about her people, her ride or die her friends and we chat about her lovely parents Sabrina‘s attitude is infectious and I know the best is yet to come.

Season 3 Episode 9 – Patrick James

On this weeks episode I sit down with Patrick James.

From the moment I met Patrick he had me in stitches but behind his fabulous personality lies a horrific story of a house fire that left 33% of his body burnt. While Patrick was left was physical scars his parents suffered mentally and turned to alcohol which resulted in all four children taken into care.

When Patrick‘s father died shortly afterwards, Patrick‘s mother gave up the alcohol and worked to get all the children back but making the ultimate sacrifice with the baby of the family.

Patrick tells me about finding solace in stage school and then going on to win the voice of Ireland, as I said Patrick is simply fabulous he has never let his life tragedies define him as he says there’s no point in going through it all to end up living in the past.

Season 3 Episode 8 – Jennifer & Rosie

On this week’s episode I sit down with Jennifer Fay and her daughter Rosie.

Jennifer and Rosie at ultimate survivors and in this episode Jennifer opens up for the very first time not only about Rosie‘s illness but also some of the horrors she experience in her own life. 

A distressing relationship that nearly killed her, and alcohol dependency as a result of this and the loss of not only one or two other siblings but, a chance meeting on the North Strand turned her life around forever. 

Pregnant soon after meeting James they went on to have not only one but two children and on her second child Rosie, who after four months was diagnosed with hydrocephalus Jennifer strength and resilience shone when she was told Rosie would never will never be a normal baby that she would never walk or talk, on the 31st of July Rosie completed a 5K channel challenge with her friends and family cheering around as she cross the finish line
