The woman who underwent the first lung transplant in this country is doing "extremely well" according to the Mater Hospital in Dublin this afternoon.

A spokeswoman said the patient, who is 55-years-old, has been able to get out of her hospital bed and sit in a chair just two days after undergoing the historic procedure.

She said that her doctors were very happy with her progress.

The operation was carried out at the hospital's new heart and lung transplantation unit, which opened last year.
