Tadhg and Ettie

Tadhg visits his Granny Ettie in Clonlara, County Clare every day and stays overnight as often as he can - he considers her his second Mammy.

Tadhg has just moved into leaving cert in secondary school and must begin his studies for his leaving cert. He recently welcomed a new baby sister into his family and is smitten. Ettie spent 8 years in the UK working as a nurse and returned to Ireland in 1976 in order to raise her family. Until her recent retirement, she worked with adults with Special Needs and now spends her spare time reading and looking after her grandchildren.

She dotes on Tadhg and their relationship is extremely close. They are travel buddies, having visited Boston and Lake Garda together they even went to Australia to visit Ettie’s son for a month.

When it comes to TV, Ettie is a big fan of The Chase, Antiques Roadshow and WW2 documentaries. She has a fascination with war-time films and books and any type of period drama.

She and Tadhg enjoy movies together, while he also loves to watch The Walking Dead.

Tadhg says his guilty pleasure is Big Brother but Ettie thinks it's rubbish! Ettie’s pin-up would be Sean Connery and her favourite actor is Tom Hanks. Tadhg is a huge Quintin Tarantino fan.
