The home-farm accident injured, Michael Healy Rae, TD is being released from Cork University Hospital today after being admitted on Sunday.
In a short statement, the Kilgarvan politician wishes to thank all those who sent their best wishes during his period of enforced down-time.
“I would like to take this opportunity to thank so much everyone who has been so kind to me over the last number of days since my accident.
“I am so thankful to the management and staff in Cork University Hospital for their great care since Sunday and also to the Gardai who were so good to me and my family on Sunday night.
“I am being released today from Cork University Hospital and the extent of my injuries are not too serious just a few fractured ribs, but I will just have to take it easy for a number of days.
“Thanks again so much to everyone who have been so kind to me and I would also like to say my thoughts and prayers are with the McGrotty and Daniels family after their tragedy and to the people of Brussels this morning, may god bless them all.” Michae.
