He told TheJournal.ie the van was his “pride and joy”.“It was very unique, there’s none other like it in the country I think. I was so delighted when I saw it, I always wanted to get one and when I turned 25 I got it. You have to be 25 to get camper van insurance so I had saved up. I sold my car and did without a car for two years to save up for it.”The 27-year-old is a teacher and he had enjoyed a summer of driving around the country with family and friends.
