Ciaran Byrne and Denise Kenny Byrne were on their honeymoon in December 2018 when he began to realise that something might be wrong with his health. In the lead up to the long-anticipated trip, he had been feeling run down for some time. It felt like a winter flu.

"I was that busy with work, we just didn't see it," Ciaran says now. We're sitting in the kitchen of the couple's beautiful north Dublin home, which Ciaran built on a plot of land beside the family home he grew up in. His sister lives on the other side of them. Both Ciaran and Denise, who met through friends, come from large families, each is the second youngest of seven siblings.
