POPSTAR Ronan Keating made it a day to remember for young patients at Our Lady of Lourdes Hospital for Sick Children, Crumlin yesterday, writes Ken Sweeney.

The big-hearted popstar sang carols with more than a dozen actors, sports and media stars, models and socialites, after they toured wards.

Now in its sixth year, the annual visit, is organised by Ronan Keating's brother, Gary Keating, and his wife, Valerie, to give seriously ill children and their families a lift at Christmas.
