About Us

The National Paediatric Craniofacial Centre (NPCC) is based at Temple Street Children’s University Hospital, Dublin, Ireland. We provide treatment to children and young people with craniofacial conditions from birth to 16 years of age. 

Craniofacial surgery in Ireland was started in 1989 by Professor Michael Earley, Consultant Plastic Surgeon, Temple Street and Mr David Allcutt, Consultant Neurosurgeon, Beaumont Hospital, Dublin 9. This service was managed by Anne Mc Gillivary Cleft & Craniofacial Services Manager.

 In 2008 Mr Dylan Murray, Consultant Craniofacial, Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon was appointed as the lead clinician and Mr John Caird, Consultant Paediatric Neurosurgeon joined the team. 

The NPCC is now one of the largest Craniofacial units in Europe. We care for children from all over Ireland presenting with complex Craniofacial Conditions. We have extensive links with many Craniofacial units throughout Europe and North America.
