A seven-year-old boy with cerebral palsy has secured an interim €3.6m payment under a settlement of his action over the circumstances of his birth at Cork University Maternity Hospital (CUMH).

Outside court, Iarlaith Ó Cinnéide, who the High Court heard has received an advanced form of physiotherapy, smiled as he told journalists: "I'm so proud of my progress, I can walk and talk and eat and dance."
