Aontu leader, and Meath West TD, Peadar Toibin, has taken to social media to thank people for their kindness and support in his recent cancer battle.

Earlier today he posted on Facebook;

I really want to thank everyone who sent so many good wishes over the last few weeks.

Thanks for all the texts, phone calls Facebook messages, emails and Mass cards.

Thanks to all the great nurses and doctors who did wonderful work.

It really helped. Thank God I’m on the mend. The latest results have been good and I have one more scan to get.
