More than 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 100 years.
Paddy has close to 30 different cures and heals through prayer. Remedies include oatmeal to cure asthma, angina, and headaches, and sand to get rid of warts and veruccas.
Paddy cannot explain how it works but is a great believer in the power of prayer. He gets requests from people from all walks of life, saying: “When they have tried the rest, they come to me”.
Paddy has also had success with relieving orf in sheep, red water in cattle, or pink eye in animals.
Paddy will be in the Creggan Court Hotel, Athlone, on Sundays, June 19 and 26, and on July 3, from 11am to 4pm.
