Hi Sheila here, I am retired from the nursing profession after 40 years service in the local hospital. I have lived, worked and reared my family in Thomastown since getting married to Michael. My hobbies included reading, listening to radio and podcasts when walking, keeping up to date with current affairs and visits to the theatre. My real passion is cooking which I can indulge in since retiring. I also travel extensively to far "flung places" with Michael who doesn't allow the grass to grow under my feet!!!
Retired Irish Police Officer who then followed a hobby as a photographer into the professional realms and had my own studio in Thomastown. Had a wonderful time as a professional photographer, met Clint Eastwood and many other famous people along the way. I photographed over 500 weddings and have many happy memories tucked away in negative form in a filing cabinet. This is now converted in the attached listing. I have lived in Jerusalem with my family during the 1970's and worked with UN. As a result love to travel back there and keep a keen interest in developments in that part of the world. In the past year (2013). Love cycling and have toured Ireland on an electric bicycle, lazy maybe but lovely when going uphill. Enjoy plays, classical music but also oldies from 50's and 60's. Reading with Kobo ereader and using the ipad and other gadgets floats my boat also! Love nothing better than getting up early in the morning, going for a 5 mile walk,and listening to some podcasts, news or music on earphones. Am really conservative as far as food goes, movies favourite is Circle of Friends as I recall it being made just five miles away in Inistioge.
Our motto during life was always treat a person like you would like to be treated and remember " never criticise anyone until you have walked a mile in their shoes".
