A heartbroken mother paid tribute to her "little miracle" son who lost a five-year battle with cancer on New Year's Day - but whose incredible courage in fighting the illness inspired thousands.
Eimear Doyle fought back tears as she told mourners how "so, so proud" her family was of little Fionn (7), Ireland's youngest honorary Garda, who fought leukaemia after being diagnosed with the cancer at just 18 months.
Fionn made national headlines last summer when an appeal to make his seventh birthday extra special given his terminal cancer diagnosis sparked an international response.
Eimear, her husband Jack, and daughters Amy and Saoirse all wore orange jumpers at their son's Mass of the Angels in Kildorrery, Co Cork, in honour of the fact it was the little boy's favourite colour.
Hundreds attended St Bartholomew's Church, with special guards of honour provided by Fionn's national school classmates and Kildorrery scouts.
Fionn's white coffin was decorated with paintings of his favourite TV show 'Power Rangers', and the offertory gifts reflected the loves of his short life - a lead for his dog Lightning, a cherished 'Power Rangers' toy, his beloved honorary Garda badge, and a family photo.
