Jillian McNulty is celebrating this week after Minister for Health Simon Harris announced the the HSE would fund Orkambi and Kalydeco.

The local woman has been to the fore of the campaign to have the life saving drugs  funded by the Government for the last two and a half years.

And, on Tuesday evening her dreams came true!

"I am delighted; over the moon," she said. 

"I just can't believe it."
