On Monday 17th June we were delighted that Rett Syndrome Ireland’s 10 year Anniversary was recognised with an invitation to visit Aras an Uachtarain. On a beautiful sunny afternoon 14 of our wonderful girls together with their families were welcomed by Sabina Higgins on behalf of her husband President Michael D. Higgins to Aras an Uachtarain. Ms. Higgins following an brief address to all gathered, introduced herself in person to each of our girls and spoke to their families and posed for photos. It was most pleasing to note that in preparation for our visit Ms. Higgins had thoroughly researched Rett Syndrome. We must give a special thank you to President Higgins, his most welcoming wife Sabina, her aides and all the staff of Aras an Uachtarain for giving us a wonderful day to remember.
