Roy Keane makes one young Ireland fan's day at the Aviva Stadium

The senior team’s assistant manager met Tomás and his parents at Lansdowne Road.

IRISH FOOTBALL LEGEND Roy Keane helped to put a smile on the face of seven-year-old Tomás yesterday.

Thanks to the work of Make-A-Wish Ireland, SSE Airtricity and the FAI, the young Cork native and his parents were invited to Dublin and given a VIP tour of the Aviva Stadium.

Ireland fan Tomás, who lives with a rare muscle tissue cancer called Rhabdomyosarcoma, then got to interrogate the senior team’s current assistant manager in the dressing room.

He was also presented with the new home jersey complete with his own name on the back.

The picture of the pair sitting together is great…
