What can you say about Mattress Mick that hasn't already been said.....well, this - he's one of the nicest people you'll ever meet and was an absolute star at Zeminar 2017 in the RDS. It was like having royalty in the house when he waltzed through the doors and the crowd went suitably wild.

His message is simple but no less impactful - I failed but I'm not a failure. In this short talk he recounts his fall from the top of the retail furniture industry and how he with the help of Paul Kelly, his alter ego and a massive dose of humility has sprung right back to the top!

In 2013, she progressed to reach her first major international podium when she claimed two bronze medals at the IPC World Championships in Montreal.

In June 2017 she was honoured by the Lord Mayor of Dublin, Brendan Carr, with a Lord Mayor's Award, which is awarded 'to citizens who, through their ordinary everyday lives, enrich this city in an extraordinary way.
