Seán Cox and his family made a tremendously uplifting appearance on Friday night's episode of The Late Late Show, as Sean continues his recovery from the assault his suffered in Liverpool in 2018.
His wife, Martina, was in studio to talk about her new book With Hope in Your Heart: The Seán Cox Story, while Seán and their three children appeared via video link from their home in Dunboyne. He arrived back home to his family in late March of this year, where he continues his rehabilitation from the injuries he suffered.
Seán was in good spirits, laughing at Martina's cooking skills and his own karaoke ability, much to the delight of viewers, who were also blown away by him and his family's strength, and care for each other.
"I would have walked over coal for Sean”

#LateLateShow Sean Cox is some man for one man- after everything he’s been through he’s still got a smile on his face & a thumbs up. His family were outstanding- the love, hope & optimism they have is something else- we can all take a leaf out of their book. #YNWA
