Heart transplant boy Dáithí MacGabhann all smiles after Solitude wonde…

Step aside Joe Gormley – there’s a new prolific striker in town.

West Belfast boy Dáithí MacGabhann proved he has an eye for goal when he scored at Solitude on Saturday.

The four-year-old is a big Cliftonville fan and was cheering on the Reds as they beat Warrenpoint Town 1-0.

Dáithí – who has been waiting on the gift of a new heart for over three years – showed off his skills during the half-time interval.

He stepped up to send Cliftonville goalkeeper Luke McNicholas the wrong way, and then treated the fans to a bright celebration.

Dáithí and the Donate4Dáithí campaign were invited to Solitude on Saturday as Cliftonville’s official match-day partners for the game against Warrenpoint.

It also helped raise awareness of Organ Donation Week which is running from September 20-26.

Dáithí was placed on the waiting list for a heart transplant in June 2018 and has remained on it.

Since then, his family have worked tirelessly to set afloat the Donate 4 Dáithí campaign, aimed at encouraging families to talk about organ donation and to sign the register.
