SHE likes dancing and dinosaurs and yesterday she became Dublin GAA star Eamon Fennell's newest fan.

Brave Lily-Mae Sunni Morrison (4) from Co Galway, was diagnosed in June with Neuroblastoma -- an extremely rare form of cancer, which affects just one in 100,000 children.

Yesterday, Fennell paid Lily-Mae a surprise visit in Crumlin Children's Hospital to help raise awareness of her condition and to launch a charity drive to help her parents, Judith Sibley and Leighton Morrison, with her treatment.

A charity version of 'Tiny Dancer' involving stars such as Declan O'Rourke will be recorded in September to help raise funds.

A 'Sunni Mae Soiree' will take place in Dublin's Lillies Bordello on September 17. Tickets are €20 and can be purchased at the venue.
