Comedian Emma Doran was just about to sit her Leaving Cert when her first child, Ella, was born. Thirteen days before the exams began, to be exact.

I was 18 when I got pregnant,” she says now. “The summer before I headed into sixth year, myself and a friend went down to Courtown to get jobs. We went down and obviously fell in love with Courtown, because I was pregnant in about four days. I had those four days of freedom, and that was about it,” she laughs.
