Sometimes I have felt like a citizen of the world. But at the end of the day, I am an Irish citizen.

I have tried to take advantage of any rights I’ve been given to vote in the other places I have lived.
There’s a very important referendum coming up here on May 25th and I’m very happy that I just sent off my form to be added again to the electoral register. My vote is my voice, and it’s only a few years until my children will be able to do the same.
