Husband and wife team of Fergie and Mairead Quinn of Fergie's Bar, Tullamore, have presented two local charities with cheques for €1,500.

Fergie recently celebrated his 50th birthday by holding a fundraiser in aid of Offaly Down Syndrome Association and Irish Breast Cancer Society.

The fundraiser amassed donations of €3,000 with Fergie and Mairead splitting the money between the two worthy causes.

Both charities have said they are 'over the moon' with the donations and said they will make a huge difference to their service users.
