A FUNDRAISING PAGE has been set up for the family of a three-year-old girl who died after a car crash that happened when her father was bringing her to a local creche.

Estlin Wall died after she sustained brain injuries in the crash that happened on the N85 Ennis to Ennistymon road near Inagh in Co Clare.

The toddler was airlifted to Dublin due to the severity of her injuries and was on life-support until last night when it was switched off, allowing the child to die in her mother’s arms.

The child’s father Vincent Wall also suffered severe brain trauma in the crash and he remains unconscious in another Dublin hospital.

The fundraising page says the Estlin’s mother Amy only recently gave birth to another child, 12-week-old baby Mannix:

On top of all this Amy is nursing their 12-week old baby Mannix. Her family, the Dutil’s, have arrived from the US and the Wall family have also gathered in Dublin where they’ve been supported by some of Vinnie and Amy’s close friends who have traveled from all over. Everyone is devastated and in a complete state of shock. Amy requested that Estlin’s organs be donated and that procedure took place immediately after she passed away.

Actor and The Stunning musician Steven Wall is Vincent’s brother and he has today shared the fundraising page saying the family is “devastated” by what happened.

“It’s a tragedy beyond belief and we are all in bits.,” Steve Wall wrote on his Facebook page.

“The details of Estlin’s funeral in Ennistymon will be on RIP.ie soon. Please don’t send any flowers, but consider donating something, no matter how small, to this fund set up by the community of Ennistymon to help Amy and Vinnie through the difficult times ahead and Vincent’s rehabilitation.”

The fundraising page says that: “Vinnie’s recovery will be a long road and it’s impossible to tell how his long-term condition will be.”
