Joe McGuinness

Emergency car situation made me pull into nearest garage, which happened to be down a lane way in Ballyfermot, Dublin, whilst waiting I met Joe McGuinness. When I asked how long on crutches Joe told me his story in brief. Whilst in prison he fell over accidentally. The guards didn’t believe he was in pain and he spent 7 weeks in his cell without treatment, eventually they allowed a doctors assessment and Joe ended up in intensive care, in a body brace, for 2 months having fractured seven vertebrates. He is now permanently on crutches, fighting a losing battle for compensation, and drinking himself to oblivion. Truth? Who knows, but I believe him.IMG_5257
