Q. Tell us a bit about our family
We are a film-mad family and the boys have been making films and animations and winning awards since they were small kids. Leon is now studying animation in Limerick School of Art and Design. Saoirse is the actor and has been in Vikings and now a Lidl ad!
Saoirse is 17 and in 5th year, Leon is 19 and in 1st year in college.
I'm food mad and have written three cookbook. I've often found myself standing in Lidl in my PJs (Limerick style!) looking for an ingredient for a food photo, or recipe for a book or newspaper piece.
Is it quirky that we have a Lidl gym in my living room, stashed under the dining table? I've a trampoline, kettle bells and foam roller to keep me in shape! Leon uses them too but Saoirse can’t be bothered.
We're two vegetarians, so there's one carnivore which annoys Saoirse no end, as he has to cook all his own meals now! Lidl is a lifesaver as it’s a great shop for ingredients that are otherwise very expensive for delicious, high quality, vegetarian food.
