CAMPAIGNING mum Vera Twomey said there are five options on the table to secure treatment for her daughter Ava.

It comes after a four-and-a-half hour meeting with Health Minister Simon Harris last night.

Vera and her husband Paul were today meeting with Gino Kenny TD to discuss their options, while the family are also due to meet a neurologist later this week.

Paul said the meeting has given the family 'clarity' over what steps they need to take.

Vera is also expected to visit a hospital to get an x-ray on her knee, which left her confined to a wheelchair at the end of her 260km walk to Dublin.
