Roz Purcell Really Wants You To Go And Take a Hike!

Roz Purcell is a busy busy woman and one of Weekend Breakfast's favourite people to follow online. She always uses her platform for good. Whether it be healthy food or hiking. 'The Hike Life' is something she started up a few years and she recently wrote a piece for the Irish Times called ‘32 great hikes around Ireland’ – one in every County. It has provided her with an outlet for body and mind. Roz says that her mindfulness is in the mountains. Ironically, she agreed to come on the show just before she broke her leg (see below) and detailed the gruesome experience on her Instagram! She wasn't even on a hike ...it was tennis! Rambo Roz didn't even seek the Doctor after breaking it. She didn't think it was painful enough to be a break! She doesn't have a leg to stand on! Roz tells Alison Curtis on Weekend Breakfast all about the leg break, and her top tips for hiking plus some of her favourite hiking spots in the country: [audio mp3="https://media.radiocms.net/uploads/2021/05/01115739/WB-ROZ-PURCELL-HIKING.mp3"][/audio] Find out more here: rozpurcell.co/the-hike-life   View this post on Instagram   A post shared by R O Z (@rozannapurcell)

Cathy Kelly's Own #MeToo Experience Inspired A Story In New Book

Cathy Kelly's Own #MeToo Experience Inspired A Story In New Book

Cathy Kelly is one of Ireland's favourite novelists. She is also a global literary star selling over 15 million copies. Her stories are always heartfelt and her characters are brought to life by her emotive and natural writing. 'Other Women' is the name of her latest book. It revolves around 3 very different women - Sid, Bea and Marian. #METOO INSPIRATION One narrative in the story is informed by Cathy's own life experience. She told Alison Curtis on Weekend Breakfast that if all her books (over 20 now!) were informed by her own life she'd "be in a pickle jar at this stage. It's just not possible!" However, she has used this new book to include an event that she experienced that informed a character's story. She also credits the #MeToo movement for inspiring her include it in the story. “Suddenly you begin to hear other people’s stories. And it’s very powerful to say, ‘Oh, that’s not your fault. How was that your fault? Why is it that when you’re 20, and somebody who has power over you does this to you, why is that your fault?’” She also says that sometimes people can shield what is really going on and slowly we are getting able to shre and open up much more as people than we used to in Ireland: “I thought, ‘OK, you know, people look at me and they think because I am enthusiastic, and I’m generally a good-humoured person, they don’t see that there’s any darkness, or that there’s any anxiety or worry. And I’m a bag of all of those things." I think if you read my books, you can see that.” Huge congrats to @cathykellybooks 🎉 on her new number 1 bestselling book. #OtherWomen is out now and available in all Irish bookshops!! @orionbooks pic.twitter.com/zGxSn6d7QG — Hachette Ireland (@HachetteIre) April 20, 2021
