It wasn’t really a party but it was a great get together of Pádraig’s friends who joined him to celebrate his upcoming birthday for which he won’t be in Ireland – but in Germany for another four weeks of intensive therapy. (Pity An Saol isn’t up and running yet.)

It was a really exceptional afternoon. In so many different ways. With so many really exceptional people. I think I mentioned before that Pádraig once wanted to set up a new country off the west coast of Ireland. His friends here today would have been the people to he would have loved to live with him in this country, full of fun, empathy, and love.
