Brain Damaged

A seven-year-old girl who was severely brain damaged at birth could have been saved from injury if she had been delivered ten minutes earlier, the High Court has been told.

Faye Walsh, of Letterfrack, Co Galway, has through her mother Martina sued the Health Service Executive and two consultant obstetricians over the circumstances of her birth at University Hospital Galway on 15 August 2011.

The defendants deny the claims.
