As well as PS 104 students, over 30 percent of the school’s staff were affected by the storm. McShane’s family home in Freeport, Long Island was also destroyed by Sandy. McShane, her husband and their one-year-old son, Liam, have been staying with family since late October.

"Two months on, my insurance has not given us any figures about the cost of the damage done," she said.
With countless people still suffering in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, McShane says it was inspiring to see many Irish people come out to help last Saturday.

“Everyone was so pleasant and happy,” McShane said.

“I am still in awe. When you see the goodness in people, it’s amazing.”
