Over 30 years ago, Paddy Hughes had no idea of what fate had in store for him when his aunt chose him to carry on the gift of healing which had been in the family for over 100 years.
Paddy has close to 30 different cures and heals through prayer. Other remedies include oatmeal to cure asthma, angina and headaches, and sand to get rid of warts and verucca.
He can’t explain how it works, but is a great believer in the power of prayer. He says that he even gets requests from people of all walks of life. He adds, with a touch of humour, “when they have tried the rest, they come to me”.
Paddy also works on animals and has great success in curing Orf in sheep. A phone call can relieve red water in cattle or pink eye in animals.
Paddy will be in the Shamrock Lodge Hotel, Athlone, on August 31, September 7, and September 14 (three Mondays ), and Tullys Hotel, Castlerea on September 1, 8 and 15 (three Tuesdays ). Both venues from 12 noon to 7pm.
