Marion Roche Martin - a former software engineer with Apple - recently returned from Silicon Valley California to the house where she grew up in Bishopstown, County Cork.
Determined to swap the high-pressure life of Silicon Valley for a calmer, more family focused existence, Marion and her American husband Engel and their two young daughters have moved in with Marion's mother Kathleen.
Three generations of the Roche family have done well to co-exist in a house with a chaotic layout of tiny rooms where Kathleen has lived alone for the last decade. But this is a special house. Kathleen wouldn't live anywhere else.
