Siobhan O’Reilly (59) starts her day with a run on the pink sand of Killahoey beach not far from Dunfanaghy in Co Donegal. It’s not unusual for her and her six-year-old cockapoo Bo to have it all to themselves for their 30-minute run.

It’s a big change from being a partner in a busy New York City physiotherapy practice where Siobhan worked for many years, raising her two children.
