Adele King has revealed the “financial crucifix” that her Rathfarnam mansion has become, breaking down on the radio this morning at the prospect of having to sell it.

Speaking to Brendan O’Connor on Radio 1, she admitted it is “heartbreaking” to lose her Georgian family home.

Despite the anguish that the entertainer feels, she said, “it’s untenable to think that I can hold on to that on my own.”

“You never own a big Georgian house like that, you’re the custodian of it for a period of time in your life. As custodian of it I absolutely love it, I put my life, soul, heart, money, earnings, everything into that house.  It was the home I bought my children up in, was married to David in,” she revealed.

Twink poignantly added that she has dreamt of owning the very house when she was a young girl and saw it in it’s run down state.

“When I saw the distressed state the house had gone into years ago I remember thinking, ‘God if I had that old house, what I would do with it’ and I did so it’s heartbreaking”.

Despite the finacial woes, the property market is not exactly booming and the 64-year-old pointed out that it wouldn’t be as easy to sell as one might think.

“People are not exactly jumping out of the hedgerows to buy a big old Georgian house in Rathfarnham these days. So even wanting to sell it is not that easy… I don’t want some opportunistic boy with deep pockets to snatch it for 11 pence after all my work on it either”.

The entertainer is no stranger to be being in the headlines but it is something that Twink admitted that she’s well used to.

“I don’t see myself out of the courts or the papers in the immediate future, short of winning the lotto, like everybody says”.
