Four year old Shane honoured as Little Blue Hero
It was a very special moment for the Hearn family this week when their beautiful boy Shane was honoured as a Little Blue Hero.
Four-year-old Shane Hearn who is undergoing treatment for leukemia was honoured at a very special ceremony by emergency service personnel in front of family and friends who gathered at his home.
Shane was nominated by the staff of the paediatric unit in Tipperary University Hospital in Clonmel.
Like most boys his age, he loves the sound of sirens and the sight of flashing lights.
As an honourary Garda, he was presented with his very own Garda patrol car and looked the part as he whizzed around with a big smile on his face.
Credit must be given to members of the Gardai and Little Blue Heroes Foundation for organising the day.
