FATHER-of-five Conor Cahill is a man who always puts his best foot forward, even though he suffers from two debilitating illnesses — myalgic encephalomyelitis, known as M.E, and fibromyalgia.

“I was diagnosed four years ago,” says Conor, 47, of Cloyne. “I was dealing with a lot of issues at the time. The origins of M.E can be viral, environmental, hormonal, genetic, neurological and immunological, or a combination of one or more. Stress may have triggered my M.E.”
