Angela Byrne grew up in the heart of rural Ireland, one of a family of five. Her role as the middle child was to learn from her elders, and teach the younger children how to behave. On leaving secondary school after the Intermediate Certificate, Angela went straight to work.

On selling the farm, Angela and John moved to Kilkenny City, where they opened a Bed and Breakfast, run as “Celtic House Bed and Breakfast”. Their hospitality business is one of the city’s most popular, and the Lonely Planet guide has designated Angela, “Ireland’s goodwill ambassador to the world.”
