A lovely gesture
A Carlow man gifted a Leinster jersey by Sean O'Brien - signed by the whole team - has donated the €600 selling price of the jersey to charities after he auctioned it online.
Martin McAndrew said he was delighted to donate €300 to the Kevin Bell Trust and €300 to the Charlie Curran Charity in Carlow Town.
The winning bidder was from Westmeath.
He added: "Thanks to everyone for the support, it's great to help out others."
