In this clip Bassima Fawaz tells a story which illustrates the length and nature of the relationship between the Irish and the South Lebanese. She recounts her memory of working with a female Irish doctor, Mairead Murphy, twenty-three years ago. She describes her as a good friend who attended Bassima's engagement party. Mairead came back to Lebanon and held Bassima's first child when he was seven or eight months old. She came back to Lebanon briefly in 2016 and Bassima invited her to her house where she met Bassima's son who was now twenty-one years old.
