Identical twins, Fergal and Neal, grew up on a farm in rural Cavan along with their three other brothers.
Fergal is the eldest by five minutes but, in spite of this, Neal sees himself as the sensible one who always keeps an eye out for Fergal.
They live a stone’s throw of one another and claim to chat with each other more than to their own wives.
Although they rarely see eye to eye, the pair have never had an argument in their entire lives.
Neal is surrounded by women, as the father of three girls, two of which are teenagers. He’s been married 15 years and lives his life through the four ‘F’s- Football, Family, Friends and Fianna Fail.
Neal is very involved in the local community, from managing a few football teams to participating in the parish’s ‘Strictly Come Dancing’ fundraiser for the second time.
Fergal still works on the family pig and dairy farm. He’s also a family man with two girls and two boys,his youngest is now a few months old. He’s described as ‘the witty one’ and loves nothing more than banking a load of sport and spending the day watching it all.
Neal is envious of Fergal’s Sky Sports package as a lot of viewing in his house revolves around ‘Dance Moms’ and ‘Don’t Tell The Bride’. Neal watches more telly than Fergal, with his favourites being ‘The Chase’, ‘Pointless’ and ‘Antiques Roadshow’.
