Its been a mixed year for rugby players in Ireland, but Connacht’s Jack Carty is definitely shining a positive light.
Carty who plays at ten for Connacht Rugby was in Connemara during the week and met up with a 14-year-old Cai Quinn who was down in the dumps, but by what his dad has said Jack changed his day.
All we can say here at SportsNewsIRELAND is WELL DONE Jack Carty you made a lot of Connacht Rugby fans very proud today.
Here is a tweet and letter that was sent to the Connacht Rugby Twitter account by Cai’s dad Robert Quinn.
@connachtrugby, my 14 year old son was sitting in a park today, down in the dumps. Jack Carty came by, cheered my boy up… Kicked a ball about with him and then drove to our home to deliver one of his rugby shirts as a souvenir.. Jack you are a bloody gentleman. Thank you!!
Your son met one of the good ones!. Jack is a true gent!. Tell your young lad to keep the head up the world is full of people who will try and bring us down, forget them and surround yourself with people like Jack who see the best in people!.

This is fantastic. Lovely story. Keep the head up kiddo. Wonderful to see people like @JackCarty10 looking out for young people going through a hard time. I'd like to think we would all do the same. This world can be a tough place but we can all rise above the hard times
