He has since been in the care of the Mater Hospital in Dublin is currently in the National Rehabilitation Centre in Dun Laoghaire.

To assist Fitzgerald, the club are organising a Golf Classic in Charleville Golf Club on April 11 and April 13. The cost of a team of four is €300, with sponsorship of a tee or green costing €100.
