Cork woman Vera Twomey says she is hopeful her daughter Ava will get access to medicinal cannabis treatment.

It follows last night's four-and-a-half hour meeting with the Health Minister Simon Harris.

Ms Twomey arrrived at Leinster House yesterday after an eight-day protest walk from her Cork home.

She said that she discussed several options that could offer Ava the treatment she needs for a rare form of epilepsy.

It is understood an outcome of an application for medicinal cannabis treatment will be clear within two weeks.
