Rebecca De Havalland on the Radio

This week the fabulous Rebecca De Havalland is our guest on the Sunday Scrapbook.
From Granard originally, Rebecca was born as Eamon Tallon, later took the name Ross for professional reasons and finally became Rebecca in more recent years - having become at the same time Ireland's first transgender person to complete the full sex change operation. She has had a rollercoaster of a life story - and she tells it honestly, and with great warmth, in her memoir "His name is Rebecca" - which was cowritten by Evelyn Walsh and was published earlier this year.
The book is a great read, and I look forward to talking to Rebecca on Sunday at the usual time (the usual time is 4pm), in the usual place (liffey sound fm - link on the right).
I'll probably have to wear a hat though, Rebecca's a real hair and beauty professional and I fear my birds nest/ mass of split ends might be distracting for the interview.... for fab beauty and fashion updates you could do worse than visit Rebecca's blog over here

Rebecca's chosen theme is "One day at a time"
