Lisa on why her Mam is the best!

My Mam’s name is Margaret Hayes. A woman who was made to be a mother.
My dad always jokes that my two sisters and I are like sheep always screaming around the house ‘maaaam maaam mam!’ She never gets a break!

Now that my sisters and I have moved out of home and away from West Cork she gets to enjoy endless texts asking questions like ‘what side of the envelope does a stamp go on’ ‘how do you poach an egg’ ‘can you clean my dress- it says hand wash only’

A lady who only has to look at a crying baby and they will stop crying. She knows that no medicine can cure an illness the same way the thick-aran blanket can.

She sacrificed every single Sunday of her summer for the past 17 years to come and support my sisters and myself in coastal rowing regattas.

She is the best baker in the world, her brown bread and coffee cake are my favourites (I would share the recipe but when I asked for it she said its a fistful of this and a spoon or two of that 😂)

She’s ensured I have incredible time keeping skills by never letting us be late to anything…ever! For all of these reasons and many many more I am so grateful that she is my mum and respect and cherish ever thing she’s done for us!

A women who I can sit down have a drink and a laugh with, and equally scares the daylights out of me anytime the threat of a black bin back going down the room to take all my make up and clothes away if I don’t clean- here’s to you Mam. Xxx
