What a year it has been and how the world has changed since March 2020 for us all. We live and work in a beautiful place; so much of our lives has not changed, but the way we earn money has changed dramatically. Knockaloe Beg is usually full of people: guests, friends and members of the public walking through … then suddenly it all goes quiet and our four children, who have left home, start to come home. There were unexpected blessings of time with the kids, which we had not had for 9 years - since Zoë left home. We readjusted to living with our adult children, and what FUN it was.
