We are delighted to announce that we are kicking off our stars and their cars series this week. This series will feature some of Ireland biggest sporting personalities alongside tv and radio presenters alike. This fun motoring related Q&A will give you the audience a great insight into some of the sporting stars you watch week in week out, not forgetting the presenting you watch and listen to on a daily basis. The goal of the series is to donate as much money as possible to our partner charity that is Bumbleance. For those of you who have never heard of bumbleance, it is Irelands only private ambulance service dedicated to helping sick children. It's a brilliant cause that we love helping out. Each post we are putting up in the series will have a donation attached to it on behalf of the participants for the charity. We’d just like to thank all those who have taken part, taking the time out of their busy schedules to help a great cause.
We are also donating a percentage of the profits from our great value range of creative kids headphones. For every pair, we sell we will be donating a percentage of the profits, so this is a great opportunity to do your bit for charity while picking up a bargain stocking stuffer in the process.
Limericks winning captain, a man who led his county to its first All-Ireland hurling title in 45 years, beating Galway by the narrowest of margins. At only 25 years of age, Declan has been involved in the limerick setup since 2011, taking over the captaincy in 2017. A rock in the limerick defence, the key role he played on their journey to the final did not go unnoticed. What he and his team have achieved this past year is an amazing feat, making him a fitting candidate to begin our stars and their car series.
