I always went to Ireland as a child. I remember trips to Dundalk, Wexford, Cork and Dublin. My gran was born in Dublin, and we had a lot of Irish friends, so we'd stay on their farms and go fishing. They were fantastic holidays - being outdoors all day and coming home to a really warm welcome in the evenings.
I really enjoyed playing Freddie Cork. People are always scared to approach me because of the character I played in 'Brotherhood.' The writing was very smart.
I was freelancing for years in Cork and around. I also wrote freelance pieces for 'The Irish Times.'
Here, in Cork district, you have in combination all the dangers which war can inflict.
Without the Empire we should be tossed like a cork in the cross current of world politics. It is at once our sword and our shield.
