It is with great sadness that we learned today of the death of Cllr Paddy Histon from Cobh, Co Cork.

Paddy was a stalwart supporter of Epilepsy Ireland for many years among other charities. He was synonymous with the famous Cobh Ball Run, a simple but spectacular annual fundraising event in Cobh that raised over €36,000 for our charity in recent years. Paddy very kindly nominated us as beneficiary charity in 2007 and we remained involved in the event until last year. Paddy's enthusiasm and dedication to supporting community organisations like Epilepsy Ireland was well-known and his passion saw the Cobh Ball Run become one of the most fun fundraising events of the year.

We want to extend our sincere condolences to Paddy's wife Lil & their family. He will be missed by his family and friends, and by the extended community including everyone in Epilepsy Ireland.
