In episode 3 of One of Our Own, writer Catherine Foley has an in depth conversation with Barbara Grubb.
Barbara is a descendent of one of the principle families of the South of Ireland, the Fitzgeralds, Lords of the Decies.
In her conversation with Catherine she talks about why she is passionate about carrying on her family’s legacy and how together with her husband, Nicholas, they manage the historic house and gardens of Dromana.
This series is produced and edited by RoseAnn Foley, Catherine's sister, and it was made with funding from the Broadcasting Authority of Ireland with the Television Licence Fee.
RoseAnn says her aim was to shed light on the idea of what makes a true Waterford person. “They are all fascinating people,” she says. “I find their stories truly inspirational. I loved working on this series. And there’s a lovely vibe going through the series as Catherine and myself are old friends with a number of the guests. And then we met some of the others and we felt we had known them all along. It was a really enjoyable project.”
