Cian O’Daly and son Henry
You may recall the post concerning the removal of Health Card privileges from five-year-old Henry O’Daly, who is suffering from Hypo-Plastic Left Heart Syndrome.

Thanks to everyone for the amazing level of support shown over the past few days. I am pleased to let you know that the matter has now reached a positive conclusion whereby Leo Varadkar’s parliamentary policy advisor phoned [Friday] to apologise and to provide definitive confirmation that Henry will retain his medical card. I have no doubt that the support shown by all of you coupled with representations made on my behalf by The Live Line with Joe Duffy Team and the office of [Labour’s] John Lyons TD, expedited the whole process of review and forced the HSE to reverse their decision.
