It all came about in October 2005 when I had a drink driving accident and got an Acquired Brain Injury or A.B.I. At my worst I was in a coma for 4 days, was down to 7 stone, lost the power on my right side and couldn't eat solids for 3 months. Parents told I wasn't going to make it by doctors. Now I want to share my experiences, good and bad, with others and help them to overcome their problems like I did, using the system I used."

All week stands in Áras na Mac Léinn and Áras Moyola.
