Around 150 people have taken part in a protest at Our Lady's Childrens' Hospital, Crumlin in Dublin to highlight concerns over the withdrawal of discretionary medical cards.

Supporters of Lydia Clery and her daughter, Erin O'Connor Nolan, who is seriously ill and receiving treatment in the hospital, staged the protest.

The family had medical cards withdrawn but have since had them been restored.
