MY DRIVING FORCE
My mother Jean died of lung disease in 1999. She was only 57. I carry this photo of her wedding day everywhere with me because she’s my driving force. I feel I have to do what she couldn’t – have a career as well as a family. Her father died when she was 15 and her mother brought up ten children. All the boys went to college but there wasn’t enough money to send the girls too. She lived to see The Corrs’ success but didn’t meet her grandchildren, which is deeply sad.
