Bressie revealed today that he has just received the keys to his first home after several years of renting.

The Mullingar native has lived in Dublin since his late teens, and had previously moved back to his parents’ house over lockdown after an unsuccessful attempt to buy his own apartment.

Now, the 40-year-old is finally moving into his own place and revealed on Instagram that he’d just received the keys to his first house.

The musician shared a proud photo online, writing: “22 years of breaking my heart paying rent, today I received the keys for my first home. It’s one hell of a tough journey to get there and thank you to all that helped along the way.

“Now I have to get on YouTube to up my DIY skills (which I have zero of),” he added.

Speaking in December, he told of his "amazing" experience of living at home with his parents during lockdown.

"I had bought my first apartment the week before I went into lockdown and that fell through. I have been at home for 34 weeks," he said.

“I haven’t lived in Mullingar since I was 18 or 19.”

He continued: “It’s not something you thought you’d be doing in your late 30s. But it has been amazing. I have very fond memories of my childhood where I grew up, so it was pretty easy for me to go back. I think my parents are sick of me now. I had nowhere else to go!”

Bressie said that the beautiful scenery near Mullingar was his “saviour in lockdown.”

In an Instagram post last month, he shared some photos of Westmeath landmarks Lough Ennell and Lough Owel.

He wrote: “The Lakes of Mullingar are getting some good press this week. The starlings beautiful synced dance of nature at Lough Ennell and this beauty Lough Owel.

“I am beyond lucky both within my 5km. They have been a saviour in lockdown.”
