RTÉ Sports broadcaster, Evanne Ní Chuilinn spoke to Donal O'Donoghue of the RTÉ Guide about her experience with her birth mother Mary and the relationship she has with her son, Séimí, and daughter, Peigí.

"Because of my journey with Mary, which was at times emotionally draining, I didn’t want to go through it as a mother myself. So I never wanted to adopt a child. I always wanted to have my own children. Maybe a big part of that also was that I didn’t look like anyone else in my own family growing up and I wanted my kids to look like me."
