Gaisce winner measures up for hospital room makeover
SECONDARY school student Emma O'Callaghan has won a competition to make over the family room at the children's leukaemia award at Cork's Mercy Hospital.
The student, from Mahon, will work alongside Denise O'Connor from RTE's 'Design Doctors' and Catherine Crowe from Optimise Design in revamping the room after winning the Facebook contest.
The teenager, who recently finished transition year and completed the President's Gaisce bronze award programme, said she is delighted to win the DFS-sponsored prize.
She said: "I was so shocked that I was picked. This is an amazing opportunity to see into the world of interior design."
