Locals have also been helping him out by purchasing and delivering ingredients for him to use.


Speaking to Tipp FM, Leonard said he felt it was the least he could do. “It’s like as if I was back in the hills of Lebanon overseas on an outpost just working away,” said Leonard.

“I do scones, apple tarts, brown bread, and different types of fairy cakes.”
