The baby's aunt shared the image on Twitter with the caption: “Three generations of social distancing as my dad meets his grandson for the first time.”
She later added: "Thanks everyone for your lovely messages! The good news is baby Faolán is doing great and oblivious to his new fame. Also Faolán is my nephew and it is my brother Míchéal holding him. His Mammy (whose name is also Emma) took the picture.
"My dad is also doing well and is completely oblivious to his new fame. He wouldn’t let me take a pic of him but he’s smiling! My brother lives about 2 minutes away from him so he went up to say hello. He knew he couldn’t come in. He is looking forward to holding the baby soon."
This picture got quite famous around the internet and has been retweeted 39,000 times in less than 24 hours.
One twitter user commented; “I know this is a joyous occasion, and congrats to you, but at the same time, it's heartbreaking to see the look on your father's face.”

Another social media user added: “This picture's going to become emblematic of this pandemic.”
The heartwarming picture was taken by five-year-old Davin's mum and then later shared on the internet.
Old people are self-isolating themselves from their loved ones for their safety and are sharing their distress online. Many people have made their elderly loved ones gifts, such as pieces of artwork to make them feel appreciated.
