ON THE ROAD
I’m an appalling guitarist – I can only play three chords – but remarkably I write my songs on a guitar so I always have this one on the bus in case inspiration strikes. Sometimes we might drive 400 miles, especially in America, so you have to have something to do. I miss my children Flori and Cathal, who are seven and eight, terribly so I Skype them twice a day, and if I’m away for too long they will fly to see me. I also get through a lot of period dramas on box set!
