Limerick Today- 4 year old Limerick boy lives with incredibly rare condition

4 year old Limerick boy James was born with a rare genetic condition, which means he cannot talk, walk or sit up unaided. He is fully dependant for every aspect of his daily life including eating, drinking, changing, moving and playing.

Although James has many physical limitations and extensive daily care needs, he is still expected to live a long life and has already outgrown his home at the age of 4.

Joe is joined in studio by Jame's grandmother Theresa Roche..
