What makes a successful woman?

I was delighted and surprised to be asked by Midlands Radio 3 to take part in an interview about Successful Women in 2016. I met up with the other women, all very inspiring and motivating. We had a great auld laugh.

Afterwards, seeing as I was in Tullamore, I met up with my cousin Janette. We have over a century of shared experiences between us. As the saying goes
Cousins are your first friends.

 It was only as we were talking, it dawned on me that it was really Janette that they should have interviewed. It's just over a year since her 19 year old son was killed in a tragic farming accident. In January she set up and ran an Operation Transformation group in her local GAA club which had over 80 followers. She said today that she has very little memory of that time as she was running on autopilot. However, being involved in something like that gave her a reason for getting up in the morning.

It's a year down the line and things are still very raw and difficult. But Janette has kept going through good days and bad days,
She said today that she admires me for what I have done this year, but in all honesty it is nothing compared to what she has done.
All I can say is
We definitely have a touch of Granny Keena's spirit in us!

  1. A legal replica manufacturer will produce and sell an item with a replica watches sale similar quality and design, but will not use the designers name. They will make it very clear that is rolex replica sale only a simulation. On the other hand, an illegal replica manufacture will produce and sell items that replica watches sale look like designer brands and try to pass them off as authentic by using the rolex replica uk designer's name. So, If your reason for wanting to purchase a fake rolex sale is based on fine craftsmanship and the prestige of owning such a watch, but you cant afford one, you may want to consider a breitling replica the same quality at a fraction of the cost. Though the categorization is rather ambiguous, watches exclusively designed so as to create a style statement commonly fall under the category of designer watches.
