Cavan gardaí have thanked everyone who sent gifts or cards to Honorary Garda Leon Briody.
People had been encouraged to send birthday cards to Leon, who spent his sixth birthday in Crumlin Children's Hospital awaiting a bone marrow transplant.
Cavan Garda delivered the cards, and paid special thanks to the Leon's SNAs in Castletara, and to Joe Kenny, CEO of Ronald McDonald House, and Nicole Nolan for their hospitality.
Leon is having his bone marrow transplant on Friday.
Cavan gardaí say Leon has a Sergeant's promotion to attend once he recovered, and add that they can't wait to have him out on patrol again.
