Crumlin Hospital Purchases New Equipment Thanks To An Offaly Boy's Donation

He raised over €11,000 for the facility last year.

A ten year old Offaly boy has seen how the money he raised for Crumlin Hospital has been spent. 

Jack McDermott, who suffers from a rare illness, raised over €11,000, by walking over 200km in February 2021. 

The ten year old, who is a regular patient at the hospital, suffers with Behcet's syndrome which causes his blood vessels to get inflammed. 

During a recent visit, staff showed him one of the pumping machines that was bought by his donation. 

He has also been nominated for Offaly's Unsung Hero 2021.
