120 children from Chernobyl have arrived in Ireland for a month long rest and recuperation.

Their plane landed in Shannon Airport earlier this evening.

The children are third generation victims of Chernobyl and will be staying with Irish families across nine counties.

During the month-long stay, radiation levels in the children drop by nearly 50 per cent and up to two years is added to their life expectancy.

25,500 children have come to Ireland since the nuclear disaster happened in 1986.
