A little boy battling leukaemia is the youngest recruit to join An Garda Síochána, after he helped the force in Kilkenny foil the plans of some of the city’s hard-hitting criminals.

Ceejay McArdle (3) from Co. Monoghan was made an honorary guard last year during a ceremony held in Dublin’s Garda HQ but this week visited some of his colleagues to help them keep a firm hand on the law breakers in Kilkenny.

In a video posted by Ceejay’s mum Susan, the little boy can be seen pulling over a rogue driver who broke the speed limit because he was “late for mass”.

Ceejay’s mum thanked the Guards who took the time to make the experience “very special and memorable” for Ceejay.

“It was a very proud day,” Susan said.

“Ceejay made his first official arrest along with the assistance of his Kilkenny colleagues.”

The little boy was diagnosed with leukaemia in September 2014 and will undergo treatment until 2018, to battle the disease.
