Irish baby home after liver transplant in UK

 

A 10-month-old baby girl from Co Laois has arrived home after undergoing a life-saving liver transplant in England.

Amy-Rose O'Sullivan, received a quarter of her aunt's liver, in what may the first case of Irish participation in a living-donor transplant involving people with two different blood types.

She was diagnosed with cancer of the liver when she was just four months old.

She was accompanied back home by her aunt, Ann-Marie O'Sullivan and her parents, Patrick O'Sullivan and Mary Moylan.
