Heartfelt condolences to Geraldine and all Patrick’s family and friends. I cannot even begin to imagine the depth of their grief. He is with his beloved daughter Ana now, who was by all accounts as decent and kind as Patrick was. I remember Patrick as a complete gentleman who taught French to a bunch of us rookie journalists and he was so patient with us despite our atrocious pronunciation. I remember him introducing himself to us and he said, with a gentle laugh, that we would find it easy to remember his name because it was the name of Ireland’s patron saint; the name suited him. May Patrick rest in peace.

I am so upset at this very sad story. Ana was a total beauty in photo although I did not know her. I am crying for her family, for herself and her dear Dad, Mam and family.
