In a Minute Rita


To anyone who managed to stay up late enough last night to hear my story, thanks so much for listening to it. For anyone who missed it and would like to hear it, RTE normally podcast the stories each year, so I will post a link to it as soon as I have it.

It was a really great experience listening to my story and an honour to have an actress of Ruth McCabe's calibre reading 'In a Minute Rita'. She read it beautifully.

The biggest thrill for me was seeing my daughter's face when they announced the story. Sometimes, the impossible can be possible.

Wishing everyone a Happy St. Brigid's Day today and a wonderful spring.
