Seven pictures that will brighten your day

Primary school kids and real doctors at a teddy bear hospital in Limerick today. You're welcome.

The event at UL's graduate medical school today was aimed at promoting a healthy lifestyle, helping kids overcome their fears of doctors and hospitals, and of course at making sure their furry friends had a clean bill of health.

Enjoy the pics:

Over 75 medical students took part in the event which saw 10 medical stations set up in UL's sports areana.

The topics covered included the importance of regular exercise, thorough hand-washing techniques and a healthy diet.

It was all the brainchild of five medical students: Kira Gullane, Jennifer Johnson, Lukas Kieswetter, Niamh Rafter, and Melissa Shack.

Hats off to them for the idea, and thanks to @seancurtinphoto for the great photos.
