Kilkenny Hurling Stars of past and present (Eddie Keher, Richie Power, Tommy Walsh, Richie Hogan, Walter Walsh, Katie Power) and Derek McGrath joined
with Michael Lyng and the KN Group All-Ireland GAA Golf Challenge organisers as they were showing Ian O’Connell and his family their new wheelchair accessible Ford vehicle due to be presented in the coming weeks.
Everybody who met him yesterday were touched by the inspiration and the positive outlook of Ian.
What a fine young man!
Thank you to Liam Daniels and his team from the All-Ireland GAA Golf Challenge and their main Sponsor KN Group with Vanessa Cunningham.
This is a nice gesture for a very worthy cause to donate this new vehicle to Ian.
Thank you also to our media partners: John Fogarty for The Examiner, Barrie Henriques and Pat Treacy for Community Radio Kilkenny City, Michael Byrne, Brian Keyes and Harry Reid for the Kilkenny People.
We wish Ian, his dad Michael and his mother Nora well and we wish them happy motoring in this specially adapted Ford Vehicle.
