“It means everything” – Young Irish fan with rare condition has special Irish Rugby visit


A young Irish fan with an extremely rare condition has been treated to a special day with Irish Rugby ahead of their return to Six Nations action against Wales at the Aviva Stadium in Dublin this weekend.

Dáire Gorman is missing femur bones in his legs and was born without arms as a result of a very rare condition called Crommelin Syndrome, a condition which affects just a handful of people worldwide.

Gorman went viral recently following a visit to his football club Liverpool FC with a video of his trip going viral across the web as he was presented with a jersey by star players Luis Díaz and Darwin Nunez.

“We all recognise that he touched everyone’s hearts when we saw him go to his beloved club Liverpool, I can forgive you actually because I’m a Man City supporter,” Head coach Andy Farrell said to a visibily emotional Dáire.

“The courage you have and the positivity you have and how you live your life is an example to all of us, so thanks very much for coming. Make sure you enjoy yourself”
