Twitter is brimming with the news of the launch of the song “Pádraig” in Dublin’s Generator on Thursday, 11 June. Be there and be assured of a phantastic night of music.

Pádraig had a great day today. Four of his friends from Dublin are over and we had a great afternoon sitting on the balcony in glorious sunshine. It was the first time that the weather was good enough to have “Kaffee und Kuchen” and a barbecue outside. You could see the smile on Pádraig’s face when his friends arrived and started to share their news from Dublin.

Tonight and over the coming weeks, however, my thoughts and prayers are and will be with a young person who we met in a hospital some time ago, with their family. Things have taken an unexpected turn and are not looking good.
