Our vico Road home is not lavish and we are not rich, say children
TWo of the O'Donnell children have spoken out about how they don't believe they were ever rich.
Blake (31) and Blaise (right), the eldest son and daughter of solicitor Brian and Mary Pat O'Donnell, said they wanted to put a number of issues on record.
"I'd like to just say we're not rich," Blake told the Sunday Independent. "We weren't rich at the start."
Blaise (27) objected to descriptions of their family home on Vico Road, which has a swimming pool, as "lavish".
"We're not trying to deny it's a nice house, we understand that," she said. "But it's showing wear and tear. The resources haven't been there to maintain somewhere like that over the past few years.
