Kidney funds donation to Temple Street

Kidney donor Catherine Doyle from Kildare and Tipperary jockey Jamie Morris are pictured presenting Denise Fitzgerald from Temple Street Children's Hospital, with a cheque for €150,000 from the Punchestown Kidney Research Fund to go towards the building of a new Renal Ward at the Hospital.

Catherine is the sister of James Nolan, and donated one of her kidneys to him more than two decades ago.

And pictured below are Jamie Morris, Graham Atkinson from Cork and David O'Neill from Meath with James Nolan from the PKRF, visiting and inspecting the site for the new Renal Ward, which should be open next autumn.
