Stephen Lowry: first man in Ireland to get bionic hand

Everybody needs a helping hand sometimes, but for one man from County Down, that help has come in the form of a special bionic hand, after he lost his right hand in a bomb attack nearly 30 years ago.

Stephen Lowry, 51, is now the owner of a revolutionary new bionic prosthetic hand, believed to be the first of its kind in use on the island of Ireland.

He was speaking to BBC Newsline's Mervyn Jess.
