The health problems preventing him from travel seem to have cleared up anyway. Is he running the Phoenix park again or is he still wheelchair bound?

It's hard to keep a good man down. And harder still to keep down pat Hickey.

The man was near dead,close to the last rites .
The only considerate thing to do was cancel all legal proceedings.

Seems to have made a great recovery

I'd say he's wheelbarrows of dirt on all concerned.

Trying to answer my own question here, this is all I can find

Quote:
Mr Hickey was OCI president for 29 years prior to his arrest. He continues to insist his innocence. His trial in Brazil has been suspended and the OFI has no indication when, or if, it will take place.
https://www.independent.ie/irish-new...-38193763.html

Which begs more questions really. The Brazilians were pursuing Pat with zeal but now they are completely hands off with no reports of what is going on. Also the $400,000 bond will now be forfeited, who paid that bond? It was hardly our own Olympic Council?

The front of today's Sunday times suggests Pat's been meeting Kieran Mulvey from Sport Ireland looking to get his old job back.

Fair play Pat, you just can't keep a good man down

Some neck on him thinking he can fit back into his old job, really shows the high opinion and sense of entitlement he has

Apart from the blatant corruption and mismanagement of these bodies, none of these coffin dodgers never know when to call it a day...

Sepp Blatter, well into his 80s and still the head of FIFA for near 20 years.

Havelange before him, again well into his 80s as head of FIFA for near 25 years.

Pat Hicky, pushing 75 and OCI president for nearly 30 years!

None of them need the money, its all about holding onto power and relevance until the end.

Excellent detailed article by Sarah O'Sullivan.


I had not realised the reason that the case had went away was a challenge of habeas corpus, which has now failed.


I must see what odds Paddy Power would offer on Pat going back to Brazil.

I reckon yon bridge between Ireland and Scotland will be completed about the same time Rio sees Paddy again.
