Ready To Be Real by Síle Seoige


Deirdre O’Kane : It only gets better

Topics covered : Motherhood, career, ageing, menopause. 

In this episode I speak to actor, comedian, TV presenter and podcaster, the multi-talented Deirdre O’Kane.

She lives in Dun Laoghaire in Dublin with her husband, writer and director Stephen Bradley and their teenage kids, Holly who’s 17 and Daniel who’s 13.

She describes herself as an optimist who can be competitive and self-critical.

And in this conversation we talk about motherhood, menopause, her fascinating career, the story behind the making of the film ‘Noble’ and the contentment she feels at this stage of her life.

Her latest stand up show called ‘Demented’ is currently on a nationwide tour so check out her site for a list of dates and locations and to buy a ticket!
