A mam in Kildare had a lovely way of including her emigrant daughter at Christmas dinner

A4 sheet, be grand.

NEWBRIDGE WOMAN AISLING Barry is currently working over in Prague – and she unfortunately drew the short straw and had to work on Christmas day.

So her mam sent her a photo of the dinner table in Kildare yesterday afternoon, and there was a little surprise on it:

“See you’re with us in spirit having dinner”

She’d printed out a little picture of Aisling on an A4 sheet – and had her take her regular position at Christmas dinner.

Aisling tells DailyEdge.ie that the lovely gesture made her feel a little more homesick to be missing out… and that her mam kept sending her pictures:

Also got a lovely photo of dinner too whilst I awaited my chicken and noodles from the Vietnamese.

Still, it must have been nice to know her family could see her face while tucking into the turkey yesterday.

Well played mam.
