Dáire Gorman, a 12-year-old from Co Monaghan who has the rare condition Crommelin Syndrome and is a full-time wheelchair user, was treated to a special day with Liverpool FC's staff and players earlier this month.

Gorman's special visit came about after his emotional reaction to hearing "You'll Never Walk Alone" in Anfield in September went viral.

The 12-year-old and his family attended the Liverpool - Aston Villa match in September with help from the Little Blue Heroes Foundation – a charity that aims to support families of children with serious illnesses in Ireland – in conjunction with Ted Morris, chair of the Liverpool Disabled Supporters Association.

This is what it's all about giving young disabled supporters the opportunity to live their dreams and visit Anfield to watch their @LFC heroes. Impossible is nothing but only for those who truly believe. ❤️💚 Daire YNWA pic.twitter.com/SkQfe8FAsj

After the clip went viral, Jürgen Klopp, the General Manager of Liverpool, sent a message to Gorman: "I just want to let you know we all saw the video of you at Anfield when you were listening to 'You'll Never Walk Alone.'

"The players and I absolutely love your passion for the club so we want to do something for you to say thank you.

"We are going to invite you and your family to Liverpool to meet the players and watch us train."

Gorman, his parents Shelley and Kenny, and sister Aoife, returned to Anfield on December 3, the UN's annual International Day of Persons with Disabilities, where they watched Liverpool deliver a 4-3 comeback win against Fulham.

The following day, the Gorman family was welcomed to the AXA Training Centre to spend time with Klopp, who offered a guided tour of the facility, as well as several members of the squad, including Dáire's favorite player, Luis Diaz.

“You cannot imagine how much I enjoyed meeting you. You can’t,” Klopp told Gorman during their special meeting.

“This club is all about the people and the supporters, and you are one of the most special. I watched the video again this morning and I sat there and thought, ‘Oh my god’. Life without emotions… imagine that!”

Dáire said: “It’s been a magical day. Meeting Klopp and meeting Diaz – my hero – I don’t know how to put it into words. Mo [Salah] came by to say hello.

“I’m just so grateful for it all and I can’t believe I came back to Liverpool again to do all this.”

On Christmas Day, Liverpool FC shared a video about Gorman's heartwarming visit that is going viral across social media:

Dáire's mother Shelley has since told BBC News NI: "It just blew his mind completely.

"All of his dreams have come true, he’s still buzzing. He’s on cloud nine.

"He still says it feels like it didn’t happen, like it was a dream."

She added: "Dáire cried again because he’s a very emotional child.

"It was just amazing and it was so well put together.

"As parents, we’re really proud of how Dáire spoke and it was just brilliant."
