A special night for Kim (14)

A 14-YEAR-OLD girl stole the heart of Cranberries lead singer Dolores O'Riordan at the opening ceremony of the Special Olympics Games.

While last night's opening ceremony in Limerick's Thomond Park will live long in the memory of all involved, for athlete Kim O'Kelly it was an extra-special night.

Basketball player Kim, from Rathangan, Kildare, was dancing in front of the stage at Thomond Park stadium in Limerick before the Cranberries singer spotted her and brought her up to perform alongside her.
