Mrs Brown puts the Sizzle into Fundraising

Kearns, one of Ireland’s best-selling sausage brands, has joined forces with Irish mammy, Mrs Brown, aka Brendan O’Carroll, to help raise funds for golfing legend, Paul McGinley’s charity, the McGinley Foundation.

For every pack of Kearns Sausages sold during the months of September and October, 30 cent will be donated, explained Stephen O’Carroll, head of sales and marketing for Kearns Sausages.

Stephen said: “We are delighted to bring together two Irish icons, Mrs Brown and Paul McGinley, to help raise funds and awareness for the McGinley Foundation which helps young people and children across Ireland. Supporting this campaign couldn’t be any easier as all you need to do is buy a pack of Kearns Sausages from your local supermarket.

“Brendan O’Carroll has exclusively revealed to me that Agnes is a lifetime fan of Kearns Sausages,” continued Stephen. “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.”

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.

“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’.”

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.

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.”

From humble beginnings in a Dublin butcher shop in 1905, the Kearns Sausages business has expanded over the decades and its packs of sausages can now be found on supermarket shelves around the country. Visit for more information.
