....I'm heading home to Kerry after attending Paris Fashion Week. I'm so looking forward to spending two days at home with my family.

My cousin, Claire Godley, is getting married in Killarney and that is going to be a lot of fun.

Tomorrow, Mary Kennedy from RTE is coming down to Ballyheigue where I grew up to film with my dad who has been running O'Neill's B&B for over 40 years. The B&B has panoramic views over Ballyheigue bay and the sunsets are phenomenal and inspired a memorable dress from Theia where the fabric captured the burning colours.

Tomorrow will start with a leisurely breakfast. My dad makes the best fry in the whole world and we'll drink lots of Lyon's Tea and talk about the match. Sadly, I will be back on a flight to New York when the All-Ireland football final is happening but Kerry will win, I've no doubt about that.

Dinner might be chicken but it won't match the incredible roast chicken that my brother, Patrick, does. He slathers a pound of butter over it with garlic and roasted vegetables and I dream about it when I'm in New York and not enjoying it with them in Ballyheigue.
