Health Minister Simon Harris has signed a licence for Ava Barry to access medicinal cannabis.
The Cork girl's mother Vera Twomey's battle gained public attention earlier this year when she embarked on a walk from Cork to Dublin in order to raise awareness of Ava's plight.
Seven-year-old Ava suffers from a rare form of epilepsy called Dravet Syndrome and began cannabis treatment in The Netherlands in June.
Ms. Twomey posted a video on her Facebook page today confirming the news and thanking all of her supporters.
Delighted for Ava Barry being granted licence for medicinal cannabis. Better late than never but still what they have been through on top of dealing with her condition. Amazing news ????

Might be missed under the shitstorm today in The Dail but Ava Barry, the daughter of Vera Twomey, has been granted a licence for medicinal cannabis. Delighted for the family
