Although Aoibhín Garrihy grew up in the city, she is very much of country stock. Both her parents hail from Co Clare, so her childhood summers were spent in the Banner County by the sea and on her grandparents’ farm.

Even for a Dublin city-based actress with roles in Fair City, Love/Hate and appearing in The Fall alongside Jamie Dornan, roots can have a firm hold, and eventually it was to Clare that Aoibhín returned.
