LITTLE miracle man Liam Mac an tSaoi got the surprise of a lifetime last weekend when the ribbon was cut on a specially made sensory garden that was unveiled at the back of his home in Clonberne.

Liam, who is now seven, has continued to amaze doctors as when he was born at just 23 weeks, he wasn’t expected to survive – let alone go to school where he will start First Class in September.

Liam’s family say they are indebted to The Make a Wish Foundation who organised and created the special garden, but last week’s downpours meant that Liam couldn’t go outside and enjoy his new area as much as he would have liked to.

However, mum Louise says the family are looking forward to many great days ahead in the garden which has one of Liam’s favourite characters in it – Thomas the Tank Engine.
