AN event held recently in association with Gaviscon Extra and hosted by TV3's Sybil Mulcahy and Martin King saw Fionn O'Doherty, four years old from Clonaulie Close, Newmarket, son of Benny and Eileen O' Doherty receive the Child Hero Award.
Fionn was nominated by his aunt Michelle Keane, for showing enormous courage after developing a terrifying and life threatening virus that saw him lose the use of his limbs and unable to speak.
Fionn, who started pre-school last September, is now a happy and healthy little boy who can walk and run unaided. Well done and congratulations, Fionn.
