Goodbye, Jimmy

•I was so sorry to hear about the death of Jimmy Savile, a larger than life and irreplaceable person. He was so dynamic!

I was very privileged to meet him in the early 1970s doing a run from Dublin to Dun Laoghaire.

You would think that he was crazy, mad or something -- but as the Irish say, he was mad in the right way! A very fulfilled person working for so many charities and giving his time so greatly.
