Rebecca Horan swore she would never leave Dublin. That was until a little house in the garden of Ireland stole her heart. 

‘Lads, I’ve gone full country’; a recent text to my friends’ WhatsApp group described my venture to the local country market for a few bananas. How very Instagram of me. But seriously lads, I’ve gone full country.
