Coming from a Celtic background, Sifu
Jules’s family line comes from Scotland, where her great grandfather was so
furious that he had to wear trousers at his wedding he, threw them out of the
train window as soon as he could, so he could return to wearing his beloved
kilt. Following a recent DNA test, Sifu
Jules found that her links to the Celts didn’t stop at Scotland. Her DNA profile showed an overwhelming match
to Wexford and Kilkenny. This was not
surprising to her as she has always had a love of Ireland and its people and is
always filled with a happy heart when she is invited to come over to this
