The Teddy Bear Hospital at University of Galway came to an end after two days on Friday, with teddy bears from across the county now recovering after receiving diagnoses for their ailments.

The annual event is run by medicine students in the Sláinte Society at the University and aims to reduce children’s fear of hospitals.
