For some odd reason, I’m still really excited about this place I looked at for the first time yesterday. I brought out an engineer and a rehab equipment and centre specialist with me who both shared my feeling that this is a really special place. More visitors tomorrow and then, I think, we will get in an architect and fire safety expert.

There’ll be another meeting with the HSE tomorrow morning which will bring us, hopefully, closer to signing the contract and starting the project.

It is incredible to see all this happening – initiated really by Pádraig, with the support of his friends. That none of this would have happened with that terrible accident. What is the answer to all those questions around the ‘why’? Why Pádraig? Why such a devastating blow? Why at this stage of his life?
