Eibhlín's inquest was held on Halloween day, a significant day on this journey in Eibhlín's Legacy. The perfect day, to relive Eibhlín's stressful birth, short life & sudden death.
We would like to thank all those who were with us in court that day, all those that held us in their thoughts and prayers. Thanks to Dermot Sherlock and Justin Morahan for their help in preparing for Eibhlín's Inquest, and for Pippa Woolnough for all her support over the last (almost) 3 years, but especially on the day itself.
We met with the Health Protection Unit, in August 2017 and they helped initiate this part of Eibhlín’s Legacy.
Unfortunately, it has taken longer than hoped –
The Department has recently received a draft text of the regulations and is currently in the process of clarifying a number of technical details with the Parliamentary Counsel’s Office and colleagues in the HSE.
Following on from our successful meeting with the Department of Health, we have now secured a meeting with the National Women and Infants Health Programme, to see how they can help us to fulfill our aims in Eibhlín's memory.
Sadly another little baby girl Mariana from Iowa grew her angel wings after her battle with the herpes virus.
We would like to take this opportunity to offer our condolences to her parents at this sad time, although Eibhlín & Mariana cannot be present in our lives, we hope they will have joy in heaven together. 💖
With this tragic news going worldwide, it was heartwarming to realise that Eibhlín was remembered, the Independent asked us if we would like to use this opportunity to continue raising awareness in Eibhlín's memory -
An infection awareness poster has now been displayed around the hospital called "Infection Prevention & Control - Leaflets for YOU". This encourages patients to check out the above link for further information, and leaflets on various infections.
