Neonatal Unit welcomes special visitor

THE Neonatal Unit at University Maternity Hospital Limerick has welcomed a special visitor from the North Pole.

Santa Claus has made his annual visit to the unit, bringing a sack of presents, some seasonal good cheer and posing for a special photo with the newborn babies and their families on their first Christmas together.

“Santa’s visit to the Neonatal Unit is a real highlight for us every year. And we would like to thank Christy Murphy from OBriensbridge and photographer PJ Corbett as well as our own staff Mary O’Neill and Marie Carroll for making this happen every year,” said Margo Dunworth, Clinical Nurse Manager 3.

“We make every effort to get all of our premature babies home with their families for Christmas but it is still a magical day for all of those who are with us on December 25th”, Margo told the Tipperary Star this week.
