If you’re feeling down in the dumps during the pandemic, Limerick lad Padraig O’Callaghan is the man to cheer you up.
Ten- year old Padraig O’Callaghan has been producing podcasts with messages of hope and positivity through the Covid-19 lockdown.
The Knockainey boy, son of Brian and Marie O’Callaghan, has Down Syndrome but that is clearly not holding him back.
Brian, founder of EcoStraws Ireland, is a regular contributor on Live95’s Limerick Today and has talked about producing the podcast with Padraig.
“It started as a way of keeping him entertained during the lockdown, it was also a little project for him to do. But it’s also helped with his self-confidence.”
You can catch Padraig on RTE’s Nationwide tonight from 7pm, in a piece filmed by County Limerick couple Matt Kelly and Marian Malone of Matt Kelly Productions who recently produced packages for Good Morning America and This Morning with Philip and Holly in the UK.
