Margaret recovers from Covid-19

We are delighted to be able to share the wonderful news that Margaret Killoran has recovered from Covid-19. Margaret is in her forties and from Tubbercurry in Sligo. When Margaret tested positive for Covid-19 in April she was cared for in Medical South in Sligo University Hospital for three weeks. 

Margaret and her family say they are forever ‘indebted’ to the staff who helped her to feel comfortable during her three-week stay in the hospital, especially as her family was unable to visit her due to restrictions. They said that the care and love Margaret received during her illness helped her through it, and put her family at ease knowing that their sister and daughter was in such good care during a scary time.

They added ‘The marvelous staff on medical south who are working under abnormal and difficult circumstances made Margaret feel loved and cared for every minute of every day of those three weeks while offering us time to FaceTime Margaret and keep us updated with her progress. The staff were absolutely amazing and we will never forget them and what they did for Margaret.’ 

“We on behalf of Margaret, we’d like to say thank you to the staff of Medical South for working under enormous strain and risk to help people through this with dignity, compassion, and care. Your selfless commitment and sacrifice during this global pandemic is a shining example to people of Sligo”. 

Margaret is looking forward to getting home to Tubbercurry soon, all of us here in Down Syndrome Ireland wishes her a speedy recovery.
