Arguably one of Ireland’s greatest ever songwriters, Shay Healy spoke candidly on last night’s Claire Byrne Live about how he deals with being a widower, how he still enjoys life and how he deals with his debilitating Parkinson’s Disease.
Shay, whose late wife Dymphna was his life partner and best friend, said that sometimes the view isn’t as enjoyable as the climb.
The analogy was about life and how people strive to get to the top but perhaps the view along the way is even nicer.
A softly spoken Shay conveyed this very important message to the public in somewhat of a rhetorical way as he almost appeared to be thinking about his own life at this time.
Well done, Shay… keep singing!
