A brave schoolgirl from Co Louth was so impressed with the care she received at Temple Street Children’s Hospital, where she was treated for a benign spinal tumour, that she cut off her long hair to raise funds and give back.

Nine-year-old Rhea Smyth, from Faughart, north of Dundalk, is currently recovering after undergoing three operations in the past two years.
