    A great example of perseverance.

    I know Paul and his late brother Shaun was in my class at school, tragically killed a few years back. Losing his mum too, heís been through it. He and his brother Rab are great Hibbies. Shocked at the story but glad he is getting through it.

    He's my cousin and we were all very worried for him and delighted when he pulled through. Apparently the first thing his brother said to him when he came out of the coma was 'the Hearts have been relegated!'

    Is this the guy who was in a scooter club and big into his Northern Soul in the 80's/90s and used to be always be on the East Terrace back then? If it is my heart goes out to him because he is such a nice guy or is that a different Paul Henderson?

    Paul is a good friend, and what he went through was horrendous.
    Heís a fighter though.

    As an aside, the last time he was on TV he was getting interviewed on his views about the Mercer takeover.. ďDISGRACEFUL!Ē Q: Are you going to go to a new club? ďNO DANGER! NO DANGER!!Ē

    Taught Paul and Shaun at school. Great lads and a great family. Have faced some big challenges with fortitude and love.
    Warm thoughts with them as they move forward.

    Philly McGuinness, Leitrim GAA, died playing in a club match for Mohill. He epitomised all that is best about sport, making a 6 hour round trip to training three times a week from his workplace in Mayo, and was never late. His motto was 'Give it all, or give nothing'. One for all sportsmen to consider.

    Cheers bud, their are probably a lot of people who know him a lot better than me, one thing that I remember about him though is when the evening news had 6 people giving their opinion, the subject was Paul Gasgoine pretending to play the flute after scoring an away goal in Europe, god knows how many years ago that was now, Paul gave his opinion and from memory he didn't hold back, great guy.

    And very well taught too. Shaun and Paul both attended St Pats prior to that Mr McP. I think about Shaun a lot.

    Same fellah and his older brother shared the same passion.

    Thatís a tough read. Makes you think twice about the whole thing and in the context of following Hibs and getting back into the stadium, maybe not as urgent as we might think.

    By process of brotherly elimination, best wishes to your dad! (hope I’ve got that right)
