BBS Visit Ireland – History Bones Tour

  • Posted on Oct 12, 2018

On 17th and 18th November 2018, the Brittle Bone Society hosted celebratory events in Belfast and Dublin respectively as part of their 50th Anniversary.

The events featured a film charting the history and fascinating stories of the close knit community, showing the sheer resilience and hard work over many years that enabled the BBS to blossom and grow. Also featured were extracts from the BBS History Bones exhibition which charts the 50-year story about how the charity was formed, facts about developments in treatment of the condition and the fascinating stories of the people they have worked with over generations of families.

The gatherings brought together charity members and local supporters, including HSC healthcare professionals Dr Paul Jackson of Royal Belfast Hospital for Sick Children, Dr John Lindsay of Royal Victoria Hospital, Belfast, and HSE healthcare professionals Dr Ciara McDonnell of Temple Street Children’s University Hospital, and Dr Malachi McKenna of St Michael’s & St Vincent’s University Hospital.
