Ten-year-old Pádraig O’Callaghan, from Knockainey in Co Limerick, is spreading tips and advice on how to stay positive with his weekly motivational “paudcast”. The now renowned video series started up last year and has seen lots of online interaction and positivity shared. Pádraig’s father, Brian says it was a way to “help Pádraig with his communication skills and confidence”.
On how this all came to be, Brian explains that – “I do a bit of work with Special Olympics Ireland and Down Syndrome Ireland and their positive mental attitude is very, very important so that’s how we came up with the 60-second ‘Monday Motivation Paudcast.”
Pádraig loves the joy and inspiration that his Paudcast brings to his audience, he feels that they are “very happy and excited to see me”.
