Video: Northern Ireland mother's brilliant reaction when son returns from Australia after 5 years


This mum let out a powerful shriek when her son landed on her doorstep to celebrate Christmas with the family.

Paddy Magee has been away in Australia for five long years, and hadn't told his mum and dad in Fermanagh that he was coming home to Northern Ireland for Christmas.

Dressed in a Santa outfit and pretending to be 'Jacob,' Paddy's mother lost her reason entirely at the sight of her boy coming to the door.
