Former Dungiven and Derry All Star Football Joe Brolly last night revealed why he made the incredible decision to donate a kidney to a man he had known for only just over a year.
Fighting back tears, the father of five said he had instantly agreed to give PR executive Shane Finnegan, 40, the chance of a new life because he had been helpless to save his cousin who died weeks after a lung transplant.
The Irish Mail on Sunday columnist said his remarkable offer was a chance of saving at least one family from suffering the same pain.
Former All-Ireland winner Brolly said he had not hesitated to make the offer of a donation when he realised Mr Finnegan – his U-10 coaching colleague at St Brigid’s GAA Club in Belfast – was seriously ill.
‘Shane was very ill. From his perspective he was at the end of the road and he had no other option,’ he said.
‘His son Pierce is in the same team as our Toirealach and [his daughter] Eve is on the same team as our Meabh.
‘I would have known Shane’s brother Donagh – he was a superb Gaelic footballer for Antrim.
‘I met Shane about a year ago but I didn’t know at that stage that he was one of those Finnegans,’ the top barrister added.
‘I knew he was sick and I said, “Look, I’ll give you a kidney.” I’m pretty straightforward. It just seemed to me to make sense.Details
