"Parents and young persons need to know that a healthy diet is essential and consumption of a fizzy drink is not to be abused, not to be overdone."
Tony Quinn said, "There are many fantastic Irish pubs and hotels along the scenic route of Donegal which are major tourist attractions. I want to thank the Store Bar who are supporting me along the route, it's an intense 11 day cycle and to have their support is absolutely vital."
"Girls drinking didn't exist when I was a student, but now they're drinking dainty little drinks that are very strong and it's a new problem I've observed, young girls, quite drunk" he added
