It was one of these days today, all of a sudden it’s over and you don’t know where it went. So many things all happening at the same time, as if there were parallel universes or as if life was a multiscreen cinema with various actions happening simultaneously.


In the morning, I got the invitations to the launch and the film printed – something I had not been able to do without the very generous help of one of Pádraig’s friends who translated everything into Irish for me. Thank you so much! Then we went to see Pat’s uncle in Harold’s Cross Hospice (you know what that means). Later I did the weekly shopping. Spent 3 hours (at least) trying to clear out the main waste pipe that didn’t drain. Talked to a PR agency. Checked out the room for the launch. And then two acts of utter generosity happened.

Someone will sponsor lunch on An Saol Day – so you have no excuse to stay for the launch after you watched the film with us in the Lighthouse Cinema.

And someone else, in fact a neighbour of ours, sponsored the overnight accommodation in the wonderful Castle Hotel for our German visitors.

Thank you to all of them!

Pádraig keeps enjoying the good weather and kind visitors coming to the house (one of his friends visited today at around lunch time, just after work!?).

Please don’t forget to promote An Saol Day, 18 June. Please get your tickets for the movie and launch today. Invite your families and friends. We need you there on the day to show our strength and commitment!
