Introduction Facts and People Interview with Minister Writing



Cookbook, Penny Whistle

For me coming from an Irish background, being Irish was natural for me, identifying with Irish things on the TV, or Irish food etc. When I was with foster parents, this was all of a sudden absent, although the foster parents would try to do things occasionally like cook an Irish meal, but then it didn’t feel natural.... Its like a thing that make you feel comfortable, your culture in a family is not explicit, but its what makes you feel 'you' and when you are thrown into a family with none of that, it is another de-stabilising feeling to add to everything. Nothing feels familiar.
