Meet our next Little Hero one and a half year old Kate Byrne from Wexford!
Proud Nana Anne Newsome nominated Kate who started swimming at Water Babies when she was six months old. Kate was born with a huge tumour in her heart and had to spend some time in Crumlin Hospital when she was born. Kate had a slim chance of survival but has gone on to prove everyone wrong and show what a little warrior she is.
Kate’s parents were told she would tire easily, but this never seems to be the case. They believe her water babies class has helped strengthen her heart if anything. Her face lights when she's in the pool and bath and she loves practicing her 'hold on' and 'monkey monkey' while trying to walk. Nana Anne Newsome loves going to Kate’s Water Babies class in Amber Springs hotel every week to watch her splash about and learn new techniques. “We love water babies!” She said.
