Pat, how did all this come about?

"I'm a retired principal, I love teaching. I took the early retirement scheme because it was a no-brainer. After a couple of months of retirement, I felt it was groundhog day. I saw the doom and gloom in rural Ireland and I saw the unemployment. The harsh reality is that areas of rural Ireland have lost their pub and shop, and the only bit of glue keeping the rural community together is the GAA club.
