Feel-Good Story of the Day

The Guardian Family supplement profiles 101-year-old Frank Whipple, who left Cork at the age of 8 after his dad was involved in the Easter Rising and who saw action in the 1926 General Strike, fought the fascists in Cable Street in the 1930s, and for more than 30 years has cared single-handedly for his beloved daughter Peggy, who has special needs.

A thoroughly uplifting profile, except for the stuff about Millwall, obviously.
