It's a very necessary explana-tion for her 88-year-old father, Brian Doyle, of what the day ahead holds for him. Five years ago, Brian, a former merchant banker and one of the co-founders of An Bord Bainne, was diagnosed with vascular dementia, a condition which results in severe impairment of the short-term memory.
