Here's the lovely Toy Show surprise reunion that's making the whole country well up

Graham Burke surprised his three young children by returning home from serving in Africa.

THE BIG SURPRISE of the Toy Show tonight wasn’t a big celebrity, it was simply a reunion of three lovely little kids and their dad.


Graham Burke has been on a training mission in Africa with the Defense Forces for the last six months, while his kids Adam and Kayla appeared on the Toy Show to play limbo with Ryan.

Little did they know, their dad was waiting for them in a giant present.

The reunion was ridiculously emotional


Here’s the full video

The Burke family are from Cork, and Graham is currently completing his 6th tour of duty overseas. He’s currently stationed in Mali, and last saw the kids on September 14th.

His three kids, Adam, 8, Kayla, 6, and Emily 4, were all delighted to see him.

The country collectively cried
