350km Walk By Father With ME
Thursday 16 November 2017
From Irish newspaper the Evening Echo:
350km walk by father with M.E
FATHER-of-five Conor Cahill is a man who always puts his best foot forward, even though he suffers from two debilitating illnesses — myalgic encephalomyelitis, known as M.E, and fibromyalgia.
“I was diagnosed four years ago,” says Conor, 47, of Cloyne. “I was dealing with a lot of issues at the time. The origins of M.E can be viral, environmental, hormonal, genetic, neurological and immunological, or a combination of one or more. Stress may have triggered my M.E.”
However, he ignored the aches and fatigue, the burning joints and weakness and wooziness, when he walked more than 350 km of the Camino de Santiago pilgrimage in the summer.
He was a man on a mission, as he did it to mark the 30th anniversary of Deaf Enterprises.
Conor joined Deaf Enterprises two years ago and is manager of a local social enterprise which has been providing training and employment to Cork’s deaf community for 28 years.
