During a recent trip to New York, Labour TD Aodhan O'Riordain went to visit a relation, his aunt, Sister Mairead, who lives in a small religious community in New Jersey.

While he was chatting to his aunt, another nun approached – and Sister Justin turned out to be an aunt of Independent TD Mick Wallace.

"Like my own aunt who was a real campaigner, Mick's aunt had also led a fascinating life and had spent time in Bolivia and Peru," explained the Dublin Bay North TD.
