Just over a two weeks ago however, we moved from Newbridge town out to the sticks in Meath and it really takes some getting used to again. Continue reading
If you haven’t guessed it, the GAA is king in our house. I love it. Daddy Chambers loves it. Aidan loves it and Sarah is getting there. I’m totally chuffed that Aidan is passionate about playing football. I want sport to play a huge part in the kids’ lives. I want them to enjoy it but to enjoy it I firmly believe kids have to be decent at it. Continue reading

I was raised on sidelines. I was fed sport from an early age. I was a GAA mad child and it, and sport, consumed my father’s life. He ran marathons, he cycled, but when I was a small one, it was the GAA that trumped all in our house. Walterstown GAA in rural Co Meath to be precise. Continue reading

I’m really lucky that both Aidan and Sarah are very social kids. Neither of them are shy, they instantly make friends with other kids and adults alike. You would never think it, but Aidan is slightly more shy than his sister. It always takes him a few minutes to warm to new people, but once he does he’s in like Flynn! Continue reading
