Heroes hit the catwalk for charity
Move over Brad Pitt, Bradley Cooper and Cristiano Ronaldo - members of the emergency services are set to show how to properly strut your stuff as a male model.
Gardaí, HSE paramedics, Cork Fire Brigade, Port of Cork pilots and Defence Forces personnel have backed a 'Brave Men Walking' fund-raiser for the Irish Cancer Society and Breakthrough Cancer Research.
Men from all emergency services will now swap their rescue uniforms for haute couture creations as they support the charity fashion show which is the brain child of grandmother and cancer survivor, Joanie Hanley.
The show takes place in the Radisson Blu Hotel in Little Island, Cork on Sunday, November 15 next.
Joanie, a mother of five and grandmother of four, felt the fashion show would not only raise badly needed funds for cancer charities but would also highlight the vital role such brave emergency personnel play in Irish society.
"That is where we got the title for the show - 'Brave Men Walking'. These men are everyday heroes.
"They deserve our support and thanks for working to help make our world safer," she said.
