’VE NEVER NOT been in Dublin for Christ­mas – I’d cry if I wasn’t! In the past few years, I’ve gone in to on Grafton Street with my dad, pass the hat around and make loads of money for the home­less.

And there’s al­ways lots of mass, too. I think we’re the only fam­ily I know that goes to mass on Christ­mas Eve and Christ­mas Day. My sis­ter and her hus­band

and lately she’s been ask­ing me to join her on some har­monies, so that’s turned into a fam­ily do.

Other­wise, just the nor­mal. Do­ing the last-minute prepa­ra­tions for the food, putting up the dec­o­ra­tions, mak­ing mince pies, eat­ing as much as you can un­til you feel ill and

and hope­fully have a good oul’ sing-song at the end of the night.”
