When one Irish 30-something couple discovered that they were expecting their fourth child, they were no doubt elated. But after the mom caught a horrific infection during childbirth in 2016 – an event which saw her life hang in the balance – their joy quickly changed to despair. What’s more, their heartbreaking ordeal was about to turn horrific.
Niamh Boyle and her husband Liam hail from Dundalk, County Louth, in Ireland. Together, they juggled hectic lives; after all, as well as being parents to three boys, the Boyles also both worked as accountants.
Their lads – Ohran, Rian and Ewan – were all under the age of seven, so it is safe to say that both parents were rushed off their feet. However, that didn’t stop them from adding to the pitter-patter of tiny feet in their family in August 2016.
