Padraig wanted to thank Alice for all her help, support and care of him. Padraig is in a wheelchair since he fell from his garden wall aged just 16. Now, 33 Padraig has a string of academic qualifications, works for Rehab part time and today addressed the Dail on the need to ratify the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities. He came into studio to chat to Ray this afternoon
