Fund for child's surgery launched


An appeal for funding to send six year old Brendan Kirwan to the US for treatment for a rare form of dwarfism has been launched. Brendan, from Tallaght, Co Dublin, needs £100,000 for spinal surgery to stop paralysis. The Department of Health has provided 50 per cent of the funding.

The account number for the fund is 00319661 at TSB, Ballyfermot Road, Dublin.
