Fiona O'Carroll and her brothers Danny and Eric didn't get on when they were growing up.

The trio, who are the children of Mrs. Brown's Boys creator Brendan O'Carroll, bonded as they got older and started having families.

These days, they rarely each other outside of work because they are all based in different places but they always support each other.

Fiona told RSVP Magazine: "We didn’t get on at all, we killed each other! It was only when we got older and life experience brought us closer together that we really bonded, especially when we started having children.

"We have an understanding now that we didn’t have growing up."

Fiona lives in Meath and her brothers live elsewhere.

She said: "To be honest, we rarely see each other when we are not working. Danny lives in Donegal and Eric lives in Florida, where my dad lives.

"When I am not working, I don’t see them, so it is like a family reunion when we are on Mrs Brown’s Boys.

"We are delighted to see each other, we love just hanging out and having the chats.

"We really respect each other’s space because it is important not to live in each other’s pockets. We are different people and we have different opinions and views."

Who was the messer in their house? Fiona recalled: "Eric, my youngest brother, wasn’t a messer, but he was spoiled rotten. He was a surprise and he was born three months prematurely, so he got whatever he wanted.

"Rightly so though, there isn’t a bad bone in that kid’s body. I say 'kid', he is 30 now! Danny, on the other hand, was a little devil.

"He used to get me into awful trouble and he loved to see me getting into trouble. He was a torment – if he knew something was annoying you then he would keep doing it.

"He was the one who would jump out to scare you if he knew you were coming up the stairs with a cup of tea.

"He didn’t care if you got scalded, that was even funnier for him. He was the apple of my dad’s eye. I was the eldest and if the boys did anything wrong I got into trouble first because I should have known better. I was very serious as a teenager too."

Fiona, Eric and Danny have changed a lot since their childhood, but they are always there for each other.

She said: "We have ebbed and flowed through different life experiences and we have grown through them at different times.

"When one of my brothers is going through something, I might have gone through it before so I’m able to support them."

Fiona comes from a very funny family and she shared the same sense of humour as her brothers and father growing up.

She said: "I had a very laddish humour. I spent a lot of time with them and I loved their sense of humour.

"I didn’t see any difference or anything wrong with me telling the same jokes – even though I was a girl. I didn’t get into make-up or hair until my late teens or early 20s. I was brutal."

As the eldest, the mother of four was always protective of her younger siblings.

She said: "God, yeah! Danny was always getting into trouble. If there were any scraps on the street I would stand back and see if he could hold his own.

"As soon as someone was getting the better of him I would be straight in. Again, it was very unbecoming of a young girl. As we got older, they became very protective of me and they still are."
