Five-year-old Fiann Palmer has composed a piece of music entitled 'March for the Heroes' with his parents as a tribute to Ireland's frontline workers.

Fiann’s mum, Siúbhán Ní Ghríofa, is a violinist with the RTÉ Concert Orchestra and his dad Will Palmer is a freelance trumpeter. 

The trio, from Meath, composed the piece of music together, with the idea stemming from Fiann.

"I had some music in my head, then mum wrote it down and we put it all together," Fiann said.
