Well done in taking the right steps, I wish you continued success on life’s journey. On another point €7,000 for insurance, I nearly choked, your driving a car I presume around a first world city wow


Honestly, I go wherever the wind takes me TBH. Have no “base” as such and tend not to work late nights as in Fri/Sat nights, I tend to be home in Lusk before 3am


€7k is fecking ridiculous insurance for a rickshaw!

Best of luck with all dcr :+1:


That €7k is reasonable as some drivers have been quoted five figure sums. Assuming I am claims free over the next 2 years, it should be €2.5k by 2020 which is a nice bit of extra wedge to have i mo phóca


@dcr22B Great news, keep it going. Just reading your piece of news puts a pep in the step. Maith thú.


Jesus. That’s brilliant. Fair play. If u can find some way now, to monetize the other great love of your life, you’ll really be on the pigs back. Have you considered getting the Jo maxi wrapped in the latest Slayer/ Adele /Anthrax/Iron Maiden album cover?


Anything available online dcr? As in one on one…


Well done yourself Dave, and for discussing it on the forum.


Brilliant news dcr22b and thanks for sharing your journey so far .
So many people are stuck in jobs they hate which leads to stress and then effects other aspects of their life. Family inevitably suffers. Very brave and great encouragement for others that it’s never too late to walk away from a stressful job and start


Fair play boss!


Interesting take on it here by Stan Collymore , wasn’t aware he was sufferer .


Shocking to hear that the real reason he retired wasn’t because of injuries but because he attempted suicide


Fair play to him for speaking out. Showing maturity beyond his years. It’s not that long ago he had an awful fall a few yards infront of me in Dalymount and was in a really bad way. Was choking on his tongue apparently. He’s had no luck at all the poor lad. Hopefully he finds peace in his own mind permanently. Be great to see him back playing in the league one day


I could not agree any more with this. The social value of well-cared for dogs cannot be measured.
The flip side, for me, is that those who wilfully abuse animals aren’t punished severely enough.


But they’re probably just depressed Beeko…


Fair play to Shane and every best wish to him.


Good read and fair play to him and those around him for helping him recover - best of luck with you future shane.


Absolutely brilliant read. Fair play to him.


Terrible to see him go through that after reading it . His recovery has been remarkable , he’s a credit to himself . Took a lot of courage , a brilliant young man .


Incredibly proud to call Shane a clubmate, a man who helped me an incredible amount through my own struggles.
