Billy Burke, RIP

Last April I posted the news that a 29 year old Kerryman, Billy Burke, was awaiting a lung transplant. He was on a waiting list for over three and a half years.
Unfortunately, he died this morning without having the operation. Tragic as his death is, it’s not as simple as that – he was refused care in a UK hospital that has exclusive access to all donated organs from Ireland, but despite this, a hospital in Manchester took him on.
His website, was updated this morning with the news of his passing.

Mr Burke’s condition deteriorated in recent weeks. He died this morning at the Mater Hospital in Dublin.
