The new series is called ‘Love Ireland’ and in the maiden episode, Maura brings cameras on a trip around her locality, 

“After spending my summer on the Island of Love, I am now going to be showing you how much I love Ireland.” Maura said in the series intro.

“In this three-part series I will be treating you to a glimpse of the town I have lived in my whole life.”

“Where better to start my journey but home.” She beams as she leads cameras to the house she grew up in.

Maura and her mammy discuss the differences between lovely Longford and her new life in London, before bringing cameras along on a trip into Ballymahon town. Her first stop, her former place of employment - Halo hair design!
