Cecelia Ahern, today visited Temple Street and announced her new role as an official ambassador for our hospital. The Irish author, who has sold over 22 million copies of her books worldwide, has pledged to do everything she can to help Temple Street’s little heroes.
The announcement of Dublin native Cecelia as a Temple Street ambassador comes shortly after the hospital’s public appeal for €5million to build a new Neurology and Renal Out-Patients department. For years Temple Street has delivered world-class care in less than ideal conditions, and many of the facilities are struggling to cope. Paediatric Neurology and Renal treatment are two of the hospital’s major specialties, and therefore the expert care in these units is a life-line for children in Ireland.
“I’m so honoured to be an ambassador for Temple Street Children’s Hospital. I’ll try with all my heart to help raise as much money as possible to give all the extra special children the help and care they need.”
