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.
