The founder of Lá, An Chultúrlann, Aisling Ghéar and former President of Conradh na Gaeilge collapsed in his office in the Cultúrlann and was pronounced clinically dead within 24 hours. Almost a year later, he made a remarkable recovery to marry his sweetheart Bríd. This half hour documentary was broadcast on TG4 in January 2008 and was the 7th most viewed programme on TG4 that week.
