Finn Ryan opens Ireland's first Lego store in Dublin

Lego superfans have flocked to the company's first dedicated shop in Ireland on its opening day.

Finn Ryan, the Waterford boy who stole hearts after his appearance on the Late Late Toy Show last year, officially opened the store on Grafton Street in Dublin.

Finn (8), who is now cancer-free after suffering from the illness for several years, is a Lego fan and recently travelled to Legoland in Denmark.

The store features several eye-catching Lego models inspired by Dublin and Irish culture, such as a camogie player, the Poolbeg chimneys and the Aviva Stadium.

"It’s fantastic to see guests interact with the latest in-store experiences and the new Retailtainment concept," she said.
