THE family of Tania McCabe, the garda sergeant who tragically died in childbirth, have donated two state-of-the-art incubators to the hospitals who cared for her surviving son.

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.



Today, the now five-year-old joined his dad Aidan, Garda Commissioner Martin Callinan and patron of the Tania McCabe Foundation Miriam O'Callaghan to officially hand over the incubators to doctors from the two hospitals in an event at Garda Headquarters in Dublin's Phoenix Park.
