TAOISEACH Leo Varadkar was moved by a message from a young boy offering his help during the Covid-19 crisis.

Mr Varadkar shared the special message he received, via postcard, from Jack Ryan (6) in Rochestown in Cork.

The primary school student wrote to the Dublin TD to pay tribute to the leadership he has shown the nation during the virus pandemic.

"You are doing a great job - let me know if you need help," the schoolboy wrote.

To emphasise the importance of the effort to contain Covid-19, Jack even included a drawing of a Tricolour on the special contact postcard which had been issued nationwide by An Post.

The Taoiseach was so moved by the kind gesture that he shared the postcard via his Instagram account - with Jack's address carefully deleted.

"Thanks for the offer, Jack," Mr Varadkar said.
