Brave Olivia Doyle has lost her fight for life and passed away at Our Lady’s Children’s Hospital, Crumlin, yesterday.
Eleven-year-old Olivia had fought illness for most of her life, and passed away peacefully on Thursday, 20th February.
A daughter of James Doyle and Emma Donoghue, Olivia was big sister to Isabella and Caoimhe.
Olivia suffered global development delay and epilepsy which caused her to lose her speech and sight, and created many associated problems.
A fundraising campaign was recently launched to raise the money needed to provide specialist nursing care for Olivia to allow her come home to Carrollstown, Trim, to be with her family. Among the local events held were a fundraising walk in Trim and a number of sponsored hacks around the county. Olivia got her wish to come home and spend time with her family.
Reposing at her residence at Carrollstown, Trim, removal will take place tomorrow morning, 22nd February at 9am to St Bridget’s Church, Ballycastle, Co Mayo, arriving for Funeral Mass at 2pm. Burial will take place afterwards in Killala Cemetery.
Olivia is survived by her loving mother, father, sisters, grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins, relatives and friends.
