A medical device a heart beat away from a Dominican

There was a report in The Irish Times yesterday about a new medical device that treats a heart complaint where a valve does not close properly.

The new device, which is minimally invasive treats the condition quickly and cost effectively, with no need for long-stay hospital care.

The device has been developed by CroíValve, whose CEO is Lucy O'Keeffe.

Lucy is the daughter of Janet and Jerry O'Keeffe.

Jerry was a Dominican priest of the Irish Province. He was ordained a priest in 1968 and resigned from ministry in 1977.

Congrats to Lucy and the family.
