Watch: little Fionn Doyle celebrates his seventh birthday in style

Fionn, who is suffering from terminal leukaemia, had special visits to his home in Kildorrery, Mallow, County Cork, from the local Gardai Siochana, fire service, neighbours and friends, while An Post delivered a van load of birthday cards from well wishers.

Eimear, who comes from Ballygraigue Road, Nenagh, launched an online appeal for people to send Fionn birthday cards as he loves getting post.
