Ray was joined in studio by the parents of quads and triplets

Anne and Tom Cullen from Carlow are parents to set of quads: Aisling, Lorcan, Cormac and Caragh (aged 16 months). The babies were born at 27 weeks and 2 days. Cormac was the first baby to go home at 10 weeks and all four were at home by 106 days. There is no end to nappy changing!

Jim and Kathy Mahon from Meath have 1 year old identical triplet girls, Beth, Chloe and Tess, as well as 2 year old Molly Kate. At one point they had 4 girls under 14 months. The triplets were born at 31 weeks. Molly Kate still rules the roost!

Lesley and Joe Wall have 20 month old triplet boys: Kelvin, Jools and Rudy. Lesley had a tough pregnancy and an emergency C-Section at 31 weeks. The boys were allowed home after 5 weeks.

The parents chatted about the challenges of raising triplets and quads, the never ending nappy changes and mass feeding sessions.
