A personal note from Philipa…

My husband, whose family is Irish, and I made the decision to relocate to Ireland from South Africa in 2017 with our two daughters. We have enjoyed a warm welcome from new friends and the community where we have settled and we couldn’t be happier. To answer the usual questions:

Where are we from in South Africa?  I grew up on the North Coast, but while I was at law school at the University of Cape Town, my parents sold our sugar cane farm and moved to the Midlands in KwaZulu-Natal near the Drakensberg mountains. That would be pretty much in the middle of the country. We lived on a smaller farm with timber, poultry, horses and a few dairy cows.

Do we miss the weather? The weather is not very different as we had more rain annually in non-drought years but it is much more damp here in Cork.  We don’t really miss the heat and sun but maybe we will in a few years.

What about the accent?  We were surrounded by so many different nationalities and accents, understanding another accent is no worry. (Even if you’re from Derry!)

Will we learn Irish?  Learning Irish is a challenge that the smallest child is winning so far.

Do we miss the food?  We do miss biltong but if you ask us to bring South African food somewhere you’ll most likely get a milk tart or bobotie as biltong is possibly an acquired taste/texture.
