Danny O'Donoghue's 2013 winner Andrea Begley has great siblings

The Voice 2013 winner Andrea Begley has lost 90 per cent of her sight but she’s determined to achieve her dreams with her family’s help.

‘Not being able to drive is a big loss, but there are taxis and lifts from my sisters Hannah [23] and Lucy [19],’ Andrea, 27, tells us.

‘I don’t know if I could do it without them.

‘My parents [Ann and Kieren] have nurtured me over the years.

‘My sisters are also my best friends and they help me every day.

‘We have the usual sisterly fall-outs, but I try to do things for them in return for everything they do for me.

‘Hannah’s my eyes and I’d be lost without her.

‘We have a very strong relationship and have always been close.’

Andrea and Hannah, who live in Pomeroy, County Tyrone, are both movie buffs.

‘We love watching films,’ says Andrea.

‘Now they have audio description, I don’t have to poke Hannah and ask: “What’s happening?”‘
