On this weeks episode I sit down with Patrick James.
From the moment I met Patrick he had me in stitches but behind his fabulous personality lies a horrific story of a house fire that left 33% of his body burnt. While Patrick was left was physical scars his parents suffered mentally and turned to alcohol which resulted in all four children taken into care.
When Patrick‘s father died shortly afterwards, Patrick‘s mother gave up the alcohol and worked to get all the children back but making the ultimate sacrifice with the baby of the family.
Patrick tells me about finding solace in stage school and then going on to win the voice of Ireland, as I said Patrick is simply fabulous he has never let his life tragedies define him as he says there’s no point in going through it all to end up living in the past.
