The Donegal native that he took an 18 month break so he could be by his wife’s side – and they enjoyed his time off together immensely.
“But when you’re in the middle of it – and that’s when I decided to take the break – I said, how does anybody know what’s bothering you at the time.
“It could be anything. We were lucky that we were able to take the time and able to afford it. We have nothing to hold us back from doing it.
“It was a great thing to do and we enjoyed it immensely,” he added.
