Paul Hayes was in contact with the Drogheda Independent with news of the four-year-old's successful surgery, in the week where ' Tiny Dancer' appeared on RTE's Late Late Show.

' She is really doing well at the moment, with her stem-cell surgery going to plan,' said Paul, who is manager of the Barbican centre in William Street.

' The next step is stem-cell rebuilding, and she is waiting for a bed so they're not sure if she will be home for Christmas, so Santa came a little early last week.'

The charity single to raise funds for Lily-Mae's condition Neuroblastoma is still holding its number one position in the charts, but the next two weeks will be crucial.

'It was a great boost to the it performed on the Late Late Show last Friday, which has really raised the profile and awareness of the cancer,' added Paul. ' We really hope people still continue to buy or gift the single, however, for the best change of a Christmas Number 1 spot, hold off until buying until after this Friday.'

A fundraising event was held in the Barbican on Sunday, and DIFE is also holding two Beauty Blitz days this week, which are completely sold-out.

To buy the single ' Tiny Dancer', visit iTunes, or there are a limited number of CDs in CD World and HMV, Scotch Hall.
