Carlingford woman’s song for brother with Down Syndrome goes viral

A video of a song written by a local singer for her brother has gone viral since being posted online at the weekend.

Leah Kirwan, from Carlingford, first hit the headlines in 2015 when a video of her singing ‘Titanium’ with her brother Noah, who has Down Syndrome, went viral. This eventually led to the pair being invited to perform on that year’s Late Late Toy Show.

Leah has kept up performing ever since and on Saturday posted a video to her Facebook page of her singing a new track written for Noah.

So far it has been viewed more than 30,000 times with thousands of likes and shares.

Leah said: “This is a song I wrote especially for Noah last year, still room for improvement but it’s a very special song to me and, of course, Noah!✨ hope yous enjoy it and share for the people who are special to you.”

Here are they lyrics to Leah’s song:

The day I saw your baby face, you make this world a better place

Your eyes they lit up the whole room, we were taking you home very soon

Your tiny hands and little laugh, you were growing up way too fast

You are such a special boy, you fill our hearts with love and joy

And ooohh I promise I’ll protect you and ooohh nobody is gonna hurt you

Cause you are a star to me and everyone in this family, you can live the life you want and be what you want to be

Despite your differences and troubles in the path, I’m always here for you just remember that

Ignore what bad people say, you’ll meet a lot along the way. Show them all what you can do and know I am so proud of you. You’ve been through a lot in your life, between amazing moments and negative times. With a smile, you get through it all. Hold on tight and stand up tall

And ooohh I promise I’ll protect you and ooohh nobody is gonna hurt you

Cause you are a star to me and everyone in this family, you can live the life you want and be what you want to be

despite your differences and troubles in the path, I’m always here for you just remember that

You are in the hearts of everyone

Your smile is brighter than the sun

You make all the bad days seem great

Accept all love and ignore all hate

We’re blessed to have you here today

You’re amazing in every single way

Live your life the way you choose

And just know we’re all so proud of you

And ooohh I promise I’ll protect you and ooohh nobody is gonna hurt you

Cause you are a star to me and everyone in this family, you can live the life you want and be what you want to be

Despite your differences and troubles in the path, I’m always here for you just remember that

I’m always here for you just remember that
