Our Lady’s Children’s Hospital, Crumlin has lit up for Christmas, and a little patient from Portlaoise got to meet popular children's TV characters as part of the festive launch.

Four-year-old Blanka Kuzhecka from Portlaoise along with four-year-old Devon Sherlock from Finglas took part in the photocall with Ben and Holly of ‘Ben & Holly's Little Kingdom’ who came to sprinkle some magic. 

They were joined by Trabologan Holiday Villages’ very own Florrie the Fox to launch OLCHC's festive programme.

It includes popular annual events; Ho Ho Day with a special visit from Santa today December 12, and a Celebrity Ward Walk on December 21. Photos: Mark Stedman
