Andy is originally from Yorkshire, but the 49 year-old now lives in Dalkey, Co. Dublin. Currently unemployed, he previously worked as senior manager in the UK banking sector. He likes to cook seasonal food when it’s at its best and cooks every day for his wife. He likes to go to restaurants and replicate the dishes he eats when he is out. He used the money from his redundancy to relocate to Dublin and has been here ever since. Andy describes himself as a proud Yorkshireman, but having lived in Ireland for the past 13 years, he feels very much part of his local community.
