Meet Ireland’s centenarians: ‘I did everything a man shouldn’t do; I drank, I smoked — I certainly didn’t save myself. Never take life too seriously’

When it came to ageing, Albert Einstein had this to say: “Do not grow old, no matter how long you live. Never cease to stand like curious children before the Great Mystery into which we were born.” Having spent some time in the company of some of the country’s oldest citizens, it struck me that all had a relentless curiosity about life that the years have not dimmed. While they are from different backgrounds and parts of the country, all of them had this innate curiosity about the world in common.

overty was a harsh reality of life, but when they look back on their lives, it’s not the privations they focus on but the people and things they loved, their memories spun into precious gold. Having lived such long lives, they have seen many loved ones die, and this is a source of sadness, yet all of them find joy in the everyday things of life and share some of the secrets of what has made them happy.
