Ireland’s longest surviving double lung transplant patient who is from Donegal has passed away.
Brendan McLaughlin from Stranorlar, had a double lung transplant after nine weeks on a life-support machine.
He was originally transplanted in Newcastle, England on the 11th of August, 1992.
Mr McLoughlin was born with cystic fibrosis, an incurable genetic condition which meant breathing was a struggle all his life.
