The loves of Maia Dun­phy’s LIFE

Sunday Independent (Ireland) - Life - - FRONT PAGE -

The per­son

My hus­band

The mem­ory A year spent in Bor­neo work­ing with orang-utans

The mo­ment of the day

Evening time, prefer­ably on a sum­mer’s night

The song

Pulp’s Com­mon Peo­ple. I never tire of it

The movie

Back to the Fu­ture. The first movie I was

ob­sessed with

The hero I have two; Helen and Tom Dun­phy (aka my par­ents)

The book

Skippy Dies, by Paul Mur­ray. Ex­tra­or­di­nary

The ac­ces­sory

My en­gage­ment ring

The beauty prod­uct

SPF The gadget An iPad or a hand blender; I’d like to com­bine the two into one su­per-gadget

The pet hate

In­sin­cer­ity. Oh, and pineap­ple on pizza

The friend I have a hand­ful of very good friends. They know who they are

The out­fit My wed­ding dress. I wish I could wear it again

The hol­i­day


The piece of ad­vice

Don’t mix the grape and the grain

The drink

Vodka and Diet Coke

The ho­tel

The Ice House in Sligo

The bar

The rooftop of the Eme Ho­tel in Seville The hobby

Sewing. I stitch when stressed

The part of my body I wouldn’t be the most body-con­fi­dent per­son. My tummy isn’t too bad

The celebrity

I’d love to go on hol­i­day with Kate Moss

The virtue

I care an aw­ful lot

The vice I eat a bit too much. And worry. Is worry a vice? Now I’m wor­ried I’ve an­swered in­cor­rectly . . .

The smell

Lush Karma soap

The taste

Any­thing cooked by my mum. Maia has a new doc­u­men­tary se­ries ‘Maia Dun­phy’s What Women Want’, which starts on RTE Two this Thurs­day
