The Evening Herald reports that a new children’s animated TV series in production includes as a main character, a little girl with Down syndrome:

The new RTE series Punky, which will be aimed at pre-school children, features a six-year-old girl who lives with her family, and encounters daily adventures like any other child.

Gerard O’Rourke, from production company Monster Animation, says Punky is a playful little girl who overcomes many daily challenges, but she is slightly differently to other children.
