THE NEW Year brought four new arrivals at Wexford General Hospital as staff and excited parents welcomed four babies on New Year's Day.

All of the little ones were happy and healthy and their proud parents are now looking forward to a wonderful (and busy!) 2014.

The first baby born at Wexford General was Raheem Arshad Yasin who arrived at 5.17 a.m. Mother Tahira, from Tombrack, Ferns, was over the moon with her new arrival, made all the more special by the fact that he was the first baby born in Wexford in 2014.

Raheem weighed in at 5lb 14.5oz and both mammy and baby are happy and healthy. Tahira is a dab hand at motherhood at this stage as Raheem is her fifth child.

It was a case of 'from Russia with love' as Varvara Shinkarenko welcomed her new baby Luca into the world at 4.44 p.m.

Varvara is a Russian national but has been living in Wexford for some time with her husband Alex Hurley. This is Varvara's second child and she is now looking forward to getting home to Heatherfields in Mulgannon to get 2014 off to a wonderful start with the new addition to the family.

'I'm absolutely delighted,' said Varvara. 'I also have a little girl, so this is my second child.'

The staff at Wexford General were suitably impressed by little bruiser Luca as he weighed in at a substantial 10lb 13oz.

The New Year will bring massive changes for Jacinta and Ciaran Hughes from Ballyhogue as they welcomed their first child.

Baby Oscar made his grand entrance at 7.53 p.m. to the delight of his excited parents. The pair are now looking forward to taking on the task of parenthood and having a great 2014.

There was one more baby born on New Year's Day, however mammy and baby were feeling a bit too tired to chat and pose for pictures.
