Swimming is bonding time for Dad and Little Hero Daithí!

Meet our 18-month-old Little Hero from Cork!

Daddy's Little Hero Daithí has been attending Water Babies at St Joesph's Charleville since he was 11 weeks old. Dad Jimmy Kiely started Water Babies so that Daithí would be comfortable in the water from an early age. Jimmy commented 'Many people suffer from a fear of water or know friends with a fear of water so I think it's good that your child can grow up without having that fear hanging over them and enjoy splash splashing in the pool. Water Babies has helped us bond and gain trust, we are now near the end of Chapter 3 and I can gladly say its the best thing we could have done. Every week you can see Daithí has gained more confidence and willingness to try to swim and that makes him a hero in my eyes!'

Well done Daithí and Dad!
