Inishowen’s first New Year baby 08.01.08

JAMIE Ryan Doyle became Inishowen’s first-born baby of the New Year when he came into the world in the early hours of New Year’s Day at Letterkenny General Hospital.
Weighing in at 6lb 4oz (3kg) Jamie arrived a couple of weeks earlier than expected. “I wasn’t expecting a New Year’s Day baby, he wasn’t due until later in January,” mum Caroline Doherty explained. “But he surprised us all and was born at 4.36am on New Year’s Day.”

“It was nice to get home because you can’t rest properly in the hospital,” Caroline said.
Jamie’s 18 month old brother Aaron has been on hand to welcome the new addition to the household. “He hasn’t said much, but he’s been taking an interest and pointing at his little brother,” added Caroline. Story: Inishowen Independent
