Golfing legend Paul McGinley has joined forces with Irish mammy Mrs Brown and Kearns sausages to ‘putt’ the sizzle into fundraising for the McGinley Foundation.
For every pack of Kearns Sausages sold during the months of September and October, 30 cent will be donated to the McGinley Foundation which helps young people and children across Ireland.
The Mrs Browns Bangers idea arose after Brendan O’Carroll (aka Mrs Brown) exclusively revealed that Agnes is a lifetime fan of Kearns Sausages, explained Stephen O’Carroll, head of sales and marketing for Kearns Sausages.
“She is an inner Dublin city mammy and Kearns is a staple in her house, so we know she’ll be helping with the fundraising efforts. We are extremely thankful to Brendan and to Mrs Brown for helping us raise awareness of our campaign,” Stephen said.
The McGinley Foundation, which was set up in 2013 when Paul McGinley was announced as the 2014 European Ryder Cup Captain, aims to support charities and not-for-profit organisations with particular emphasis on those that assist and support children and young adults. While he is a native of Dublin, McGinley’s roots lie firmly in Donegal. Last year he received Donegal County Council’s highest honour – the Freedom of the County.
Paul McGinley said: “We are extremely excited about working with Kearns and with Brendan. The proceeds from this campaign will help several charities that I work with.”
“Linking up with Kearns makes perfect sense,” said comedian and Mrs Brown’s Boys creator, Brendan O’Carroll. “My mother used to buy them on a weekly basis, and they always went down a treat whether we had them for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Agnes loves a good sausage, and you can’t get better than Kearns. Agnes says, ‘go out and get your mouth around my bangers now’.”
Mrs Brown’s Boys is one of Ireland’s greatest TV success stories and it is due to return to TV screens this September with a new series.
