Joe said the Grogans have recently purchased a site only a 10 minute walk away from their current home where they plan to build a house fully-accessible to Shane in the upcoming year.

Shane is featured in a new anti-violence campaign video that aims to reduce the number of assaults carried out by young males.  The ‘Use Your Brain Not Your Fists’ campaign urges young men to think of consequences of assault on themselves and others before becoming involved in one.

Joe and his wife Joan travelled to Co Leitrum to launch the video alongside Joe and Rosie Dolan who lost their son Andrew to an unprovoked assault in Mullingar in 2011.

Joe said: “It’s a powerful video, I’ve only seen it a few times because I find it very difficult to watch, but young people need to realise how serious the effects of an assault can be.

“Not just for those who get hurt either, like Shane and Andrew, but the people who commit the assault as well. You could be a nice guy, just had a bit too much to drink on a night out and get a bit rowdy and hurt someone and it can follow you for the rest of your life.”

Shane’s assailant, former footballer Shane Byrne, admitted to hitting Shane over the head with a brick. Byrne was jailed for two-and-a-half years following his guilty plea to charges of reckless assault causing serious harm to Shane resulting in severe brain injuries.
