Newly Widowed Kate, childminder-in-chief Roisin and their bestfriend Oonagh have decided enough is enough. Life is too short, they're going to follow in their children's footsteps and take a gap year. Thailand? Europe? Down Under? No, they're visiting every county in Ireland, sure there's a few They've never even heard of!
