A girl with cerebral palsy would probably not have suffered any, or any severe, brain injury if she had been delivered ten minutes earlier at University Hospital Galway, it was claimed in the High Court yesterday.

Today’s Irish Independent reports that Faye Walsh, 2who is not seven, has through her mother Martina of Letterfrack in Co Galway, sued the HSE and two consultant obstetricians alleging negligence and breach of agreement in relation to the management and circumstances of her birth at University Hospital Galway on August 15th 2011.

The defendants deny the claims against them in proceedings before Mr Justice David Keane.

The case is expected to last a number of weeks.
