In November 2015, David Nolan from Kilcorney, and his girlfriend Katie survived the terror attack at the Bataclan theatre in Paris which claimed the lives of 90 people. A month later David proposed, and the couple went on to welcome a beautiful daughter in to their lives in 2016. Last December, they received news that no parent wants to hear, and the couple joined Ryan Tubridy on the Late Late Show to discuss their daughter’s life changing diagnosis.

Our thoughts & prayers with the Kilcorney man who played role in safeguarding the lives of his girlfriend and others, during the haenous attacks in Paris last Friday. They were attending the concert in the Bataclan Theatre when terrorists entered the hall and sprayed gunfire into the crowd. Unfortunately he was injured, and remains in hospital, where he is stable, and has his family at his side. We sincerely hope that hope he makes full and speedy recovery.
