“Barton’s mother, Nuala Barton, nee Quinn, was born and raised in Newry, Co Down before moving to England. She married foreign exchange stock broker Paul Marsden Barton and had three daughters with him, Zoe, Mischa, and Hania. Mischa was born in west London, raised in New York, but has always felt a special connection with Northern Ireland.”
