Au­thor and for­mer politi­cian One of the most re­lax­ing things I like to do is read. If you can get en­joy­ment out of read­ing, you are never alone. I’m in the book club on the Pat Kenny Show on New­stalk, and it’s won­der­ful. I’m on the panel ev­ery month.

I love to get to­gether with my sons and their wives — Fear­gal and Maeve and Aen­gus and Lisa — and be­tween them I have six grand­chil­dren. Just last week­end, they came to my home in Athlone and we had a very merry party. Now, ca­ter­ing for such a large group would be far from re­lax­ing, so we went for a lovely meal in Wineport Lodge. The other thing I love to do is meet with friends on a Satur­day night and have a nice meal.
