Gabriel Jonathan da Gamba originally hails from Killaloe, County Clare - though he counts as his most famous
ancestor Portuguese pirate Don Gaspar Diego da Gamba (1464-1546 a.d.), who married Castilian princess Maria-Teresa in 1487 a.d.) The quiet but good-natured paramedic laughs at any comparison with his flamboyant ancestor. "The most spectacular thing I've ever done is win a charity cooking contest on local television with my grandmother's recipe for Irish soda bread!" he insists.

Here's my OWN historic moment; asking Lilith out for the very first time!
The first time I proposed, she turned me down. But six months later, she said Yes...
We had a lovely quiet honeymoon at Knottwood Castle...
Our first Christmas together... I'll never forget it;
I'll never forget our first WALLPAPERING adventure, either!
