'It was as if I'd waited my whole life for this moment'
So it is with my son cradled under my arm that I dedicate my own letter to Daniel, writes Barry Egan
The great Fergal Keane in his award-winning essay from 1997 Letter To Daniel talked about the art of one arm typing with his newly-born son cradled in his arms.
So it is with my son, also of that name, cradled under my arm as I type this - as my wonderful wife has an enormously well-earned sleep in the hospital bed opposite.
This, then, is my letter to Daniel.
