Irish grannies hook ups
"I'll have to hang around a while to see George IV go to Presentation College in Cork, the school I went to.
"I feel I have a lot to offer my grandchildren in an educational way.
In traditional Irish cottages of days gone by, the kitchen was the central hub, witnessing the busy comings and goings of daily life. I have lovely, peaceful memories of my own granny’s kitchen.
When I was a very young child a black kettle was constantly boiling, hanging from a pot hook over the open flames.
” Rita Moore, who lives in Westport, Co Mayo, has two grandchildren, a 15-year-old boy and a 12-year-old girl.
"I have seven grandchildren at the moment, and another is on the way.And sometimes it’s jewellery, which is lovely.” Her husband, she adds, is a great man for surprises – which may or may not include some fancy lingerie. But that was from my husband, and it was a one-off. In fact in our family we do a Christkindl for €100 max – so we only buy one present each within the whole family, which is great.” What’s on her wanted list this year? And I love little things that somebody puts a lot of thought into. I wouldn’t mind a golf putter or a charm for my charm bracelet.” And on her hate list? I have been a granny for 20 years, and I’d be a long way from being excited if I were given a teapot looking like a Christmas pudding. Nobody wants them.” She suggests a Cath Kidston shopping bag might be more the ticket, for a 21st-century granny.
