Pádraig O Hara was a thorough gentleman in every way. When I found myself on crutches and incapacitated after a badly broken leg, Pádraig suggested that he and his late wife, Chris would drive me to and from St Muredach’s every day until I was able to walk again.
And they did.
A man of immense kindness.
