Last Sunday, Rory O'Donovan from Ballinhassig celebrated his 14th birthday.
Due to current restrictions, planned celebrations were put on hold, but thanks to the efforts of Garda Frances Murphy his day was made extra special after the Community Garda called to Rory's house with a present and a balloon.
"Garda Frances Murphy popped in to mark the day, and knowing that Rory loves tractors, she brought him a balloon with a tractor logo, as well as a present," Gardaí wrote on social media.
Coincidentally, it was Garda Murphy's birthday too and Rory's mum had made her a cake.
The joint birthday celebrations went down a storm, with Gardaí reporting, "smiles all round".
