Fionn chats to Dr. Joan Friedman, renowned twin expert and author.

Earlier this month Ireland’s oldest identical twins passed away within 48 hours of each other.

Kathleen and Sheila Keogan from Co Cavan were 95 years old. Their lives mirrored each other, both trained as nurses and worked in London during the Blitz, where they both contracted TB. 

But are twins always destined to follow the same path in life?  

If you are a twin or you’re the parent of twins, you will be interested in listening to U.S. author and twin expert, Dr Joan Friedman. 

Her latest book is called 'The Same but Different: How Twins Can Live, Love and Learn to be Individuals'  and for more information about Joan Friedman’s work here is her website
