On Cork’s 96FM Opinion Line With Pj Coogan.
Deirdre O’Shaughnessy writes:
Issouf Kone (top) from Cobh [County Cork] was a talented athlete who dreamed of playing football professionally.
At just 21, his dreams were shattered when a blood clot led to his leg being amputated.
Although he has a prosthesis, it’s too uncomfortable for him to walk for long and he dreams of being able to cycle around the hills of Cobh as he once did.
Issouf spoke to PJ Coogan (above) on air today: He’s fundraising for a better prosthesis but it could cost approx €70,000.
