Hardworking and energetic but don’t take myself too seriously

Hard to pick; it’s between Clonakilty Black Pudding and Tayto

What’s your favourite brand, outside of the brands you represent, and why?
Jo Malone, for its simplicity and elegance

All children have a right to a good breakfast each morning before they start school. Government should ensure that the right resources are in place to ensure that no child misses out, especially in socially disadvantaged areas

Oscar Wilde and Michael Collins. It would be interesting to see what they would make of each other

Flights for my parents for Christmas
