Paul McGuinness

The great news is that Paul was eventually discharged  from Homerton Hospital in North London and continues to make great progress with his physical strength and mobility improving daily and also his cognitive skills. He has moved into a self contained flat and is well on the road to recovery.

To those who hadn’t heard Paul was sadly involved in a serious car accident late last year and was hospitalised for quite a long time afterwards so serious were his injuries. Paul is the singer from The Popes, best known as Shane MacGowans backing band but also a God damn brilliant celtic rock/punk band in their own right and the loss of them, while Paul recovers, to the scene in London has been immense.

Paul would like to thank everyone for their support and best wishes over the last few months, and looks forward to seeing everyone again before too long. He thanks everyone from London Celtic Punks for writing and said thanks for our giant get well card you all signed at the benefit gig we put on for Paul. As Dave said on visiting him last weekend
