Two of Ireland's rugby legends are hoping to raise €756k for Our Lady's Children's Hospital, Crumlin.
Ronan O'Gara and Johnny Sexton have teamed up with the fundraising body of Our Lady's Children's Hospital Crumlin - CMRF Crumlin - to launch the No.10 Fund.
The No.10 fund (whose name was inspired by the players' rivalry for the Irish No.10 jersey) aims to raise much-needed funds to build a cardiac day unit at the hospital - complete with vital life-saving equipment.
Every year in Ireland 500-600 infants are born with a Congenital Heart Defect. All of these children are treated in Our Lady's Children's Hospital Crumlin.
O'Gara and Sexton are urging the public to get behind the campaign and help CMFR reach their €756k target.
