Carlow's Amira Rauf has had a special visit from rugby player Brian O'Driscoll and his wife, actress Amy Huberman. 

The toddler is back in the Intensive Care Unit at Temple Street Children's Hospital a week now as she has influenza and pneumonia.

She is fighting strong but is back on breathing assistance to help her cope. 

Her mother, Caroline O'Toole-Rauf, spoke exclusively to Carlow Live about her child's recovery after a car accident last November left the little one paralysed from her chest down. 

Carlow people are being asked to support Amira's Charity Road Run on February 24 by registering a vehicle in the event or just by simply attending. 

People can also buy tickets and attend Amira's Cabaret and Auction on Saturday, February 23 at Ballinabranna GAA Club House with all proceeds going to Amira and her recovery.
