MOTHER-of-eight Miriam O'Callaghan should be well used to little hands, but maybe not in her luxurious locks.

Launching the virtual campaign 'Join Hands Across The World Against Meningitis' in Dublin yesterday, Miriam said: "One of the photographers said, 'Mess Miriam's hair'. Then I could feel all these little hands digging in. I have to say, I don't mind."

World Meningitis Day on Saturday will be marked by people around the globe joining hands to draw attention to meningitis and its life-changing after-effects.

In Ireland, the day will be observed through a virtual joining of hands on the Confederation of Meningitis Organisation's website, which will be linked to the charity's website www.meningitis-trust.ie.
