Theme details

Name for label is Lorcan with an accent: Lorcán

Child Interests

He changes his favourite colour every time you ask him but he does love green and rainbows. He loves blankets and often says “I need cosy” which is his way of saying he wants a blanket so a lovely quilt would be very special. He loves looking at the sky, the changing weather and seasons, sunsets and sunrises, trees, mountains and the stars and moon. It would be wonderful if he could take these things with him to the hospital.


Lorcán Dáire is a lovely little boy who was diagnosed with cystic fibrosis shortly after birth and who has been having a tough time for the last year and a half. Due to a persistent chest infection he has had two hospital admissions of 11 days each and every day he does up to five sessions with a nebuliser and two fifteen minute sessions of physiotherapy but unfortunately the infection has not been cleared.

We have a lot of hope for the future in terms of treatment but for the time being he has a lot to put up with. We are very proud of him and love him very much.
