Win Happy Podcast

Oct 31, 2018

Greg chats with Tommy Fegan, Chairman of CRY (Cardiac Risk in the Young) in Part 1 of a fascinating podcast.

Tommy grew up in a divided society in the North of Ireland and witnessed first hand the very worst of the troubles.

His love of music brought him close to the travelling community in the South and made him one of the most popular men in the United States during spells there.

His fascinating career meant he had to push his strong politics aside with key roles with Cooperation North and the Prince's Trust where he enjoyed a special friendship with Prince Charles.

His life came to a shuddering crash on the 3rd September, 2010 when his son, Kevin, aged 24 died suddenly of heart failure.

This introduced him to the condition SADS (Sudden Adult Death Syndrome) and the organisation CRY.
