The 947 Breakfast Club chat to Vanessa in Ireland...

Vanessa and Paulo Pinheiro, affectionately known as The Pinneys, have been in Ireland for 10 years this April. It’s a pity that celebrations of their decade as citizens of Cavan won’t be as grand as they would have liked it to be, owing to Covid19 dampening the mood. Even the well known St Patrick’s holiday celebrations were cancelled this year.

The spirits of the Irish people remain intact, however. Vanessa recounts how the country banded together, just after coming out of recession, as The Pinneys moved there. It will be the same fighting essence that they will beat Covid19. Thanks to her Medical Consultant husband as well, who is at the forefront of this battle.

It helps that the Irish are law abiding citizens, Vanessa says. It doesn’t matter that their bars can only open in December. Listen to more of the chat with Vanessa as she shares what measures have been put in place for the lockdown in Ireland.

Here's what they chatted about and more...

  • How are things currently in Chile?

  • How is COVID19 affecting the people there?

  • Are we getting the full story here back home?

  • What is your biggest fear?

  • Who are you missing the most?
