The Victoria Thompson Memorial Fund was kindly joined by Tommy Tiernan for the presentation of the Victoria Thompson Scholarship in NUIG university this morning 14th March 2017.
Congratulations to Aishling Devitt and Anne Browne who were selected to recieve the scholarship from the first ever children’s palliative care and complex care course in the country.
Our aim is to highlight the need for more paediatric palliative care nurses and services nationally.
We are deeply honoured that Tommy Tiernan attended and launched our initative.
Thank you to all in NUIG especially the nurses who are teaching and studying to provide care for our most vulnerable children. A huge amount of appreciation to Claire Quinn course director for all of her support and encouragement.
It was a special occasion. #Victoriamagic lives on. More interesting news to follow.
Huge thanks to Angus McMahon photographer.
