On holidays this week, I bumped into a retired nurse. As we chatted , she told me how sad she felt about losing her two children to Australia. One a doctor, the other a physio, they have made their lives in Perth.

Both left Ireland well before the pandemic, and the long period of no travel made the separation worse initially – but also demonstrated to her grown-up children that a good life could be made elsewhere, without the disruption of trips back to Clare.
