Sinead meets the students in Kinsale.

by Padraig Fitzgerald

I had the great opportunity of welcoming blind marathon runner and solicitor Sinead Kane to my office on Monday, PJ Fitzgerald Insurances, Kinsale on Monday. 

A wonderful & inspiring young woman who recently completed seven marathons in seven different countries in seven days, the sound of this even makes me tired!

We brought Sinead to visit Kinsale Community School to give leaving cert students a motivational talk where she spoke about growing up blind, schooling, her law degree and obstacles in life and her talk brought many to tears and laughter!

A special thanks to school principal Fergal McCarthy, vice principal Kathleen O’Brien and leaving cert teacher Ms Kearney .
