Add Abbott Freestyle Libre to the Irish Long Term Illness Scheme

The Abbott Freestyle Libre Flash monitering system was recently made available to buy privately in Ireland. We as a type 1 community plead with the Irish government that it is added to the Long Term Illness Scheme. This is a life changing device for all Type 1 diabetics but the cost makes it restricted to the general public. Our kids especially need this devicie, they deserve an easier life free from finger pricks.

We can't sit o
