Conor Murray, Munster and Ireland Rugby star made a special visit to Temple Street Children’s University Hospital, as part of Temple Street’s ‘Kiss Them Better’ campaign. On the visit to the hospital Conor urged Irish families to buy Medicare plasters to support Temple Street.
For every pack of Medicare plasters bought from pharmacies throughout the country, the Limerick based first-aid company will make a donation to the hospital’s emergency equipment fund. Check out www.kissthembetter.ie for more information.
Conor is pictured with Vanessa Canning, Age 17 from Letterkenny, who was only too delighted with her visitor.
