It was the most brilliant reunion with friends he hadn’t seen for some time and in a place where he was a regular but hadn’t been in five years.

The man who had booked the place sadly couldn’t join Pádraig and his friends today. He is himself in hospital. So when the party in the Conradh was nearing its end, Pádraig and us left. We had an after-party in James’ hospital. One to remember. Never to forget.

A big thank you to all of Pádraig’s really good friends who contributed to this evening!
