The High Court has approved an €8.5m final settlement for a 12-year-old boy who suffered catastrophic birth injuries at the Coombe Hospital.
Eoin Dunne from Malahide in Dublin has dyskinetic cerebral palsy, is wheelchair dependent, and cannot communicate verbally.
Two years ago the hospital was found liable for his injuries and he received an interim compensation payment of €2.9 million.
The court heard his condition may have been caused by an eight-minute resuscitation delay.
Speaking after today's settlement, Eoin's mother, Dr Fiona Murphy ,said she was relieved it is now over.
"It was extremely stressful. I don't know if I could have done it knowing what it would have taken.
"But I'm glad I did. We had to do it for Eoin. It's very hard to go through, and I feel for any other family that is going through this. It's not easy."
