Enda O Doherty on the mighty mini podcast talks to the amazing Zoe Holohan.
Zoe saw her dream honeymoon with husband, Brian Westropp O’Callaghan turn into a nightmare on July 23, 2018 when wildfires swept across the area.
Her new husband Brian was among the 102 lives lost in the tragedy.
Zoe told how she was rescued from a boot of a burning car in her new book ‘As The Smoke Clears’.
"Every breath was agonising as it’s like you are swallowing acid. It burns all the way down into your lungs so you’re even hesitant to breathe.
"And Brian is trying to crank open the gate. By the time we realised the gate wasn’t going to open, the flames had surrounded the car."
"Holding hands we ran. It’s hard to describe how dark it was for the early afternoon. There’s just this thick fog of hot smoke”.
