FOUR-YEAR-OLD Monaghan boy Ceejay McArdle made a name for himself by becoming the youngest garda in Ireland at an official ceremony last year.

Ceejay was sadly diagnosed with leukaemia in September 2014 – but that hasn’t stopped him joining the Gardaí and becoming famous with police forces around the world.

And this week he took a tour of Dublin Airport

Dublin Airport described his day out on Facebook:

The day was filled with surprises and Ceejay was most impressed by a demonstration by our Airport Police & Fire Service and a spin around the airfield in our fire tender. We made some attempts to recruit him into the fire service for the day that was in it, but Garda Ceejay remained loyal to An Garda Síochána. We like his style.

Look at Ceejay monitoring the situation from the tower

Good man Ceejay <3
