The well-known pair have thrown their support behind this year's Ride-out for Irish Premature Babies, a charity sponsored by Ssang Yong Motors and set up to look after the families of premature babies.

They were joined by a group of bikers for the launch of this year's four-day, 800-mile motorcycle tour of Ireland. So far, more than €100,000 has been raised for life-saving equipment for prematurely born babies in 11 hospitals around Ireland.

The initiative is now entering its fourth year and this year's trip has been called 'Road Warriors Ride-out for Prems 2014'.

Along the route, the bikers will visit a different baby intensive care unit and present them with a piece of equipment. Each biker has been asked to raise €1,000 to go on the trip, with all the money going to the charity.
