The cliched midlife crisis of buying a sports car was not for Bede Tannock.

When he found himself staring down the barrel of 40, he wanted to "do something of consequence". So the Australian moved halfway across the world to rescue a decaying 110-room, 60,000 sq ft country estate in Mayo.

Thanks to RTÉ, we saw the dramatic rebirth as it happened on last year's The Great House Revival with Hugh Wallace.
