Tania's husband, Aidan, said it was a "great Christmas present" to be able to give €42,000 incubators to each of Holles Street Maternity Hospital and Our Lady of Lourdes Hospital in Drogheda.

The 34-year-old sergeant was six months’ pregnant with twin boys when she died in 2007. Her son Zac also passed away but her second twin, Adam, survived.
