Little Harry O'Brien

A little boy with a rare genetic disorder needs the help of people in Tipperary.

Harry O'Brien lives in Sallins, Kildare, and his dad is Denis who is from Tipp town. 

Born with a rare genetic disorder Genitopateller two year-old Harry and his family need a bit of extra help to go about their family life. 

Fundraising is currently taking place to help Harry and his family purchase a mobility vehicle to make their lives a little bit easier.

Harry is visually impaired, non-verbal and is unable to sit, crawl, stand or walk. Despite this Harry's bubbly personality shines for miles and he is so lovable with a heart of gold.

Recently the boys of The Abbey School in Tipperary Town got together and held a non-uniform day to raise funds. The Abbey Student Council and Principal John Kiely pictured here with a cheque for €460 raised for Helping Harry.
