Q – Is your love of Ireland ‘genetic’ / do you have Irish genes, that you know of?

A – I’m 1/4 Welsh actually. No Irish that I’m aware of. Do I love Ireland that much, I guess I do, but it’s not a unique love – I also love Sweden, Portugal, Scotland, Australia. I have a special debt to Ireland in that while my career may have had severe ups and downs in most ‘markets’, the Irish have supported me consistently. Cheers.
