A nine-year-old Wexford schoolgirl decided she wanted to bring a little joy into someone's life, so she had just over 14 inches cut from her hair to raise funds for the Rapunzel Foundation.

Gemma Monaghan, aged nine, from Camross, Fouksmills, headed into Trish Doyle's recently opened 'Streets Ahead' salon in Taghmon where mother Veronica watched as her daughter's locks, which had taken her four years to grow, were shorn, last Wednesday.

Trish said Gemma, a schoolgirl from Carroreigh, was the salon's first Rapunzel girl but certainly won't be the last.

Gemma's generous gesture raised €216.50.
