We rented a car to go to Connemara. It was the first time I have ever drove on the right seat of a car. However, I got the hang of that fast. Along our journey, we came across a lovely ewe lamb lost on the road. We stopped the car and we made possible that the little lamb was with its mother again, as you can see on the photo below.
Last weeks, we have been developing “Paralympic Games” in the different clubs we are running, in Brookfield, Crumlim, and MCulliam. So I contacted with The Irish Amputee Football Association, in order to bring somebody who talks with the children, because I personally think that education through Sport can be highly effective for children, above all for difficult ones, and If you add something about overcoming difficulties, it will just be a success.
On the other hand, I had a talk with the mother of my Mentee in One2One project, whom I really thanks to come over, having had very goods words to me about what and how I am working with her son, and the overcomes we are getting in his life. It made me so happy.
You can watch his story in the video below, interviewed by Sky Sport 3 some years ago, when the accident had already happened.
After that, he decided to help other amputees being football coach. Later, he became the coach of the Irish National Team, which played the World Cup in 2014 in Mexico. We even did some exercises with crutches!
