Family & Relationships: Micheál Seoige (father), Pauline Ní Bheirne (mother, deceased), Mikey Ó Beirne (half-brother).
Réailtín grew up with her dad, Micheál, after her mother died tragically from cancer in Season 9. She is still a young, innocent girl, although she thinks she has grown up an awful lot lately. She is the apple of her daddy’s eye and can be said to be spoilt by him sometimes.
She has a bold streak in her too – if she wants something she will find a way to get it. She knows well how to work her dad and when she wanted to go to the disco in Season 22 she had him wrapped around her little finger. She made him dinner to show him that she’s very grown up and he can have faith in her. It worked like a charm and she was let have her way. When she came back from said disco blind drunk Micheál was livid with her!
Laoise is great role model for Réailtín. Réailtín can trust in her and she discusses things with her that she wouldn’t be comfortable saying in her dad’s company.
