Over 200 bikers grant terminally ill boy’s ultimate wish

Portlaoise was the scene of more than one amazing feat on Sunday – over 200 people granted a terminally ill child a greatest wish.

Six year old Shane Brophy was diagnosed with cancer.

The Portlaoise boy is now in terminal stages and was let out of hospital yesterday.

Little Shane loves motorbikes, and as his family took him out for a meal at the Midlands Park Hotel in Portlaoise, they invited many bikes as possible to show up at 4pm.

And people came out in their droves. Over 200 bikers parked outside the hotel for an hour or so for Shane.

It marked a chance for this incredible young boy to see all the motorbikes that he loves.
