Sean Cox sustained serious and life-altering injuries earlier this year while attending a football game in Liverpool.
Over the past number of months, Sean has been taking small steps on a road to recovery.
His journey will be a difficult one and the focus will continue on ensuring the best possible care to maximise the potential in Sean’s recovery.
Sean recently commenced a rehabilitation programme in Dun Laoghaire and will continue to require ongoing and intensive long-term care and support.
