Leah Hession, six, was given the chance to meet her idol prior to attending the band's gig at Croke Park in Dublin in May.

The Irish singer shared a picture of himself hugging Leah along with the message, "RIP Leah , it was an honour to have met you! Very brave young lady! Thoughts are with Leah's family at this time!"
