I was born and lived in Dún Laoghiare, Ireland and my wife Enid was born in England. We met in 1970 when I was working for Educational Television Zambia and Enid was working as an operating nurse and midwife for Anglo-American Mining Corporation in Zambia. We have four adult children who live in different parts of the world. We have lived in different countries, including Dún Laoghaire and most recently the USA. We spend several months each year in Dun Laoghaire and also like to visit wherever our children are located internationally.
