Tragic dad Barry Wolverson never regained consciousness after he was shot five times as he sat in his car outside a storage facility in north Dublin.

For 13 months the 40-year-old had remained in a catatonic state in a nursing home where he was being cared for as his wife and children prayed for a miracle.

Through three waves of Covid-19 he clung to life, albeit a shadow of the one he had once enjoyed taking part in charity hikes, playing with his children and driving his trucks for a living.
