THE LEITRIM TEENAGER who missed out on a liver transplant two months ago has finally undergone the life-saving operation.

King’s College Hospital confirmed to TheJournal.ie that Meadhbh McGivern is out of surgery and the liver transplant was completed.

A spokesperson for the hospital said that, as expected, it was a difficult and challenging operation but the 14-year-old is out of theatre and has been transferred to a paediatric intensive care unit.

Her condition is stable and she is under close observation in the London hospital.

“Meadhbh’s parents are being supported by hospital staff,” added the spokesman.
