McDaids laughing after Kevin
A DONEGAL drinks
company is laughing after getting a plug from one of
the UK's top comedians.
Kevin Bridges (28), who has nearly one million
Twitter followers, tweeted his delight at finding
the soft drink, Football Special, on sale at his
local cafe in Clydebank, Scotland.
"Good to see this fine brew has made it over to
Clydebank from Donegal! @The_glen_cafe Yaldy!" the
comic told his followers.

Football Special has
been made by McDaid's of Ramelton, Co Donegal, since
The dark-red drink, which is made to a
closely-guarded secret recipe, was originally
created to fill winning trophies on big match days.
But while iconic among Donegal people, it has only
recently been sold outside the county.
Marketing manager, Samantha Lynch, said the craft
drinks company was delighted to discover that the
award-winning comedian is a fan.
She said the comicís tweet was a particular boost
since the drink has only been available in his
native Scotland since February.
"We are thrilled that Kevin Bridges likes our
product and we're very happy at the endorsement it
gives to the brand so soon after we started
branching out with it," said Ms Lynch.
