As a child Audrey was extremely creative. You would have rarely seen her without her colouring book and crayons. Growing up on her dad’s farm in a small village called Foreglen , just 20 minutes outside of Derry City . This is where she natually developed a great connection and love for nature and animals. as a child she would spend most of her spare time roaming the acres of rural land and forest, going on adventures to see what she could discover and enjoying the beauty of it all or if not recconecting with nature Audrey could be found hiden away for hours on end in the dog kennel, besotted with the continuous litter of pups. some would say she was quite the little tom boy growing up and didn’t mind also getting stuck in to the farming duties if needed be. when she met her husband cathal at the age of 17 who swiped her away from the rural lands of her home - although away from her home farm for years that desire to be recconected with nature is always calling and when audrey gets the time inbetween being a busy mum of two , wife and business owner she loves getting back out to the wilderness and get reconnected with that inner love for nature that has never left.
