Bernard Óg’s mum, Marieann, will never forget the day her tiny baby was taken from her and rushed to Intensive Care.
“You are just so scared. Especially when you see him going off and you are not allowed to go in the ambulance with him. And you are told to take a picture. You think ‘God, will we make it up to Dublin at all like to see him?” – Marieann, Bernard Óg’s mum.
