Irish family connect with son 5,000km away for special Christmas experience

Three Ireland

Paul Mooney, from Limerick, has been living away from home almost a decade, something which really hits home at this time of year. This year Paul and his American wife, Tara are expecting their second child, meaning they can’t travel home to Ireland this Christmas. This made The Connected Restaurant experience, powered by Three, extra special for Paul’s family who relished the opportunity to share Christmas dinner with his parents, as Paul’s father, Donie has been suffering from a rare form of bone marrow cancer. “He’s a marvellous man, and I miss him. I miss the two of them”. The heart-warming and poignant video captures moments of pure joy and raw emotion, representative of those separated at Christmas.
