Nowadays I work in the hospital, lots has changed but the staff are all as nice as ever. One really big difference is that unlike in 1962 parents can now stay with their children in the hospital. That’s good news.

The staff in Crumlin were amazing, they were able to tell us really quickly that that his injuries looked worse than they were. It was traumatic but we were lucky, there was no long term damage. In fact he’s one of the most outgoing children I know.

I know its not as serious a situation as some of the children in crumlin but to us his parents it was upsetting. From the moment we got to crumlin we were treated nearly like family members. The whole staff from admin to doctors and all inbetween treated us with the greatest of respect and care. This is something we will never forget. Darragh was treated and now 3 1/2 years later he is a different child. He no longer suffers the sore throats chest infections and that constant choking he was suffering from. We will always be indebted to crumlin for everything they did for us as a family. Many thanks. Paul, janet, darragh and adam.
