Gardaí officers in Dublin celebrated an Irish woman's 100th birthday outside her home by treating her to a saxophone performance.

Kathleen Kavanagh, who lives in Cabra, County Dublin, got a special birthday surprise from the gardaí over the weekend.

Thankfully, Kathleen wasn't in trouble with the law, instead, the newly official centenarian was serenaded on the saxophone by the talented Garda Mark of the Garda Band.

Standing apart and watching in delight was Garda Shane from the Community Policing Cabra Garda Station, as well as Kathleen's family.

Birthday girl Kathleen clearly enjoyed her special surprise and even gave a little dance while the music played.

Garda Mark of the Garda Band and Garda Shane, Community Policing Cabra Garda Station, called to celebrate the 100th birthday of Kathleen Kavanagh from Dublin 7 yesterday.

Happy birthday Kathleen!

Among the replies to the gardai's original tweet was one woman, Rachel Sidney, who wrote: "Thanks a million to @gardainfo @GardaTraffic for paying a special tribute to Nanny on her 100th birthday. She's loving all the positive comments and well wishes xx."
