Read about Jonathan’s struggles to establish and maintain the Foundation and its ongoing fund-raising efforts: over €55 million raised and over 1800 sick children and their families supported in all 26 counties of Ireland.

The book also recounts other less well-known is stories from Jonathan’s intriguing background: his involvement in the Irish horse-racing industry; he ran Goffs bloodstock sales for many years, including at the time of the kidnapping of Shergar, the early days of Ryanair with a fascinating insight into his relationship with Michael O’Leary, who had a very different vision from Jonathan as to where the company should go or the time he was also head of the Dublin Sports Council when he contributed on bringing the Tour de Franceto Ireland for the first time in 1997, and much more!
