"The Way Back"
Eamonn McGirr and Friends

Eamonn at breakfast before...
On Sunday, November 3rd, 1996 my life changed drastically. On that Sunday morning I was sitting on a bar stool at our pub and restaurant and suddenly the stool collapsed underneath me - and I don't even drink! I broke my back and neck and am now paralyzed from the chest down (although some limited movement has returned). It was so hard to come to terms with-8 months earlier I had sung continuously for eleven days, twenty minutes thus breaking the world record for for non-stop singing. That whole event was to raise funds for the Center for the Disabled (my own daughter, Mareena, has Cerebral Palsy). And now, here I was dreadfully disabled. How life is strange.

In one split second, my life opened out into a different field-of dreams? I don't think so. I had often heard it said that when an accident like this happens, the whole family suffers. Oh Lord above, is that ever so true. The last five years have been a living hell for myself, my wife, Mary, and my daughter, Mareena.

We pray hard and long for that miracle, and it looked as though everyone in the Capital District did as well. I humbly thank you all.

"Not my will but Thine be done" is a phrase that we all struggle with, and I promised the Lord that if He showed me some sign of a semi-decent life returning, then I would shout His praises aloud. Thus this CD. I am still not strong enough to record a complete CD by myself, so I called upon my friends. Everyone was more than willing to co-operate with me in my efforts to present a spiritual and uplifting recording. The plans were set...

On Tuesday, September 11th, 2001 our lives changed drastically. On that Tuesday morning the unthinkable happened, and America became paralyzed. Let us all hope and pray that some day we will break free from this torture. I hope and pray that God will ease my agony, and make me realise how miniscule my problems are compared with those of the families in New York, Washington and Pennsylvania.

I hope that you -the listener- will find some message in this CD that will give you the strength and courage to overcome your difficulties.

All proceeds from the sale of this CD are to benefit Catholic Charities.
