The fourth and final episode of DIY SOS: The Big Build Ireland brought us to Waterford city to meet the Laura Sheridan. In this episode, the amazing team of volunteers and suppliers transformed Laura’s home. Laura had won Nurse of the Year and Nursing Home Manager; she was on the frontline during the pandemic and then got diagnosed with stage 3 Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. She also found out that her twin boys have a form of autism, which requires constant supervision and care.
