Cavan man involved in accident in Portugal has returned to Ireland

A Cavan man involved in a serious accident while on holiday in Portugal has returned to Ireland.

Last month, Paul Byrne, from Mullagh, was left with serious brain injuries following an incident involving a taxi.

He had been in hospital in Faro, but yesterday returned to Ireland and is being assessed in Beaumont Hospital in Dublin.

In a post on Facebook, his friends said this is only the beginning of the process and the next goal is to get him home to his family in Mullagh.
