Meet Paddy from Sligo

Paddy was having a coffee in the middle of a busy Eyre Square when I approached him. In the midst of all the hustle he looked very still. Paddy was having a sad day as he had just been to visit his wife in hospital, she had had a heart attack and was waiting to get two stints in place. He was unsure as to how she was getting on and he was waiting for his daughter to collect him. He told me about his 16 kids, all married but one, and he has so many grandkids he has lost count. As we chatted further we discovered he now lives in the town I grew up in, small world! Paddy was a lovely man to talk to and I hope his wife returns to her full health soon
