The Derry aunt of a five year-old year girl with an inoperable brain tumour has thanked Republic of Ireland and Wigan Athletic star, James McClean for his “amazing generosity”.

In last Friday’s edition of The Derry Journal we published the story with the headline ‘Wee Emma needs prayers from Derry’. Later that day, the story was made available online and was read by Derry man and Republic of Ireland international James McClean.

James contacted Derry Journal reporter, Andrew Quinn, to ask him to put him in touch with Emma Cunningham-Marques’ auntie from Derry, Margaret Cunningham.
