He is Pádraig’s name sake. And it was a real pleasure to meet him. Pat Kenny managed to guide me through what could have been an endless story and managed to keep it within a double-session they hadn’t really planned for, but which they kept, uncut. I listened to it with Pádraig. He said he liked the interview. Maybe it will contribute to bringing change by making the hidden scandal of abandonment of persons with severe acquired brain injury public.
If you manage to push yourself out of bed tomorrow morning, or just reach the remote of your telly, switch on Ireland AM. You’ll be rewarded by sharing with me my 5 minutes of fame at around 8.15:)
Whatever you do – get ready for the most amazing coffee morning in aid of ‘Caring for Pádraig’. Please spread the word and invite your family and friends over to Marie’s and Fergus’ house this coming Sunday, 28 September, 11am – 3pm, in 85 St. Mobhi Road!
