The loves of my life... Sile Seoige
The broadcaster, yoga lover and new mum talks to Elle Gordon about her favourite people, places and things
The moment Cathal, our baby, was born. It was both the most challenging and empowering experience of my life, and without a doubt, the best thing I have ever done. There might be a bit of a trend with my answers, as he is only a newborn.
The moment of the day
There are many moments of gratitude right now, as I feel like the luckiest woman in the world, but there's nothing like a nice relaxing evening, sitting in front of the fire.
Any of the songs from my 'chilled' labour playlist. It was filled with my favourite chill-out tunes from artists like Bon Iver and Sigur Ros.
Dead Poets Society is one of my all-time favourites. At 14, I saw it for the first time, and it had a profound effect on me.
Wonder Woman springs to mind. I loved the new movie.
Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte; an absolute classic. I can still quote from it. As a teenager, I was obsessed by it.
A black lace cocktail dress by Australian designer Collette Dinnigan that I bought over 10 years ago. It was an expensive purchase at the time, but I've got so much wear out of it. It was worth every penny.
I don't tend to wear a lot of jewellery, so my favourite accessory would probably be my watch. I can't leave the house without it. Of course, wellies will be my must-have accessory for the Ploughing; the heels will certainly be left at home.
My phone, which is already full of photos and videos of our new addition.
The pet hate
Insincerity and, also, angry drivers. If you're stuck in traffic, you're stuck in traffic - nothing you can do about that!
There are a few truly brilliant people in my life whom I am so lucky to call my friends. They know who they are.
The beauty product
Right now, it's under-eye concealer and mascara - anything to make me look more awake as I survive on broken sleep.
The part of my body
My eyes - they never gain weight! I always get lovely compliments about my eyes.
I've travelled to some incredible places in India, Africa and Thailand, but one of my best holidays was spent in a caravan in Co Clare with my family when I was a kid.
The piece of advice
I love The Four Agreements from Mexican author Don Miguel Ruiz.
1 Be impeccable with your word.
2 Don't take anything personally.
3 Don't make assumptions.
4 Always do your best.
Words to live by.
Right now, anything with lemon and ice! But I am looking forward to enjoying a G&T in time.
I have a soft spot for Kilronan Castle, in Co Roscommon; Parknasilla Resort and Spa in Co Kerry; and the g in Galway.
You're spoilt for choice in my home county of Galway. In Galway itself, I love Monroe's, Tigh Neachtain, The Front Door, Freeney's, Taaffes - the list goes on!
I love anything yoga-related, especially sound yoga, mantras and chanting. I'll miss the summer evenings, and not being able to practise outside.
I'm allergic to the word 'celebrity', as it conjures up images of reality-TV stars.
Integrity would be high on my list. You either have it or you don't.
I'm very boring, as I don't have one, other than my obsession with TV shows involving international drug trafficking - from Breaking Bad to the latest addiction, Narcos.
My newborn baby boy; if I could bottle his fragrance, I would!
Hummus; granola; and chocolate. I also love the taste of freshly baked brown bread, so needless to say I'm looking forward to the Junior Baking Competition in the Aldi tent at the Ploughing Championships!
