In March 2018 Fr Tony was diagnosed with Motor Neurone Disease. For a man with untold energy levels as well as a contagious zest for life, this news came as a bolt of lightning. Tony found himself part of a vastly under-resourced medical world of lengthy waiting lists and over-burdened medics.
Never one to be struck down by adversity, Tony came to the decision to walk the length of Ireland in order to raise funds and to help highlight the need for further funding in this area. The walk is called “Walk While You Can” and all funds will be donated for research for new medication RMND and to the IMNDA for the care of those living with the illness.
