Speaking to the Irish News, he said: "I buy [antiques] because of their wonderful history of craftmanship, or as a document of social history, which has got a real identity and tells a story of that area. We are giving it a new lease of life by loving it and making it survive for another century. And hopefully my kids will love it and pass it on to their kids."
