Aontu leader and Meath West TD, Peadar Toibin, has revealed he has been diagnosed with skin cancer, but is optimistic about the outcome.

 

He posted the following on his Facebook page earlier tonight.

 

Good people, I’ll be missing for a few days if you are looking for help.

Got a skin cancer diagnosis a few weeks back and I’m in hospital for an operation.

Our offices will still be open so don’t hesitate to call if you are in a bind.

I’m confident that I’ll be back, shoulder to the wheel in a few days.

Wear sunscreen and a hat.’

Already the Navan based politician has received hundreds of good wishes in the comment section of his post.
