Meet the crew


Deirbhile's spirit never wavers, as her best friend, brother and pets can all testify. If the one-year-old isn't dancing, she's showing off her Makaton skills or catching up with her hero, Mickey Mouse, on television

"I love kissing my eight-month-old little brother"

My name is Deirbhile, I am nearly two-years-old and I am one of the cutest and cheekiest girls in Lurgan! I have a little brother called Fearghal, who is only eight months and I love kissing him. My best friend is my cousin, Clementine. I am a bit older than her so I get to boss her around a lot.

Some of my favourite things to do are read books and dance to music – any excuse and you will see me showing off my moves. I love animals. I have a dog called Ruby and a cat called Laurence. I follow them around the house most of the day, but sometimes I get the feeling they are trying to avoid me.

The TV programmes I like best would have to be Mickey Mouse Clubhouse and Mr Tumble, he is just so funny. I am also a Makaton genius. I can sign lots of words, so everyone knows what I want and what I am thinking. My favourite sign to use is food because my daddy makes the best dinners ever. Mmm. Yum!
