A popular Irish bar cheered on marathon runners by handing out free beer at the Belfast marathon during the Bank Holiday weekend.

Chester Bar and Grill handed out beer at the 11 mile mark, just short of the finish line.

Local Jordan Miller told Independent.ie that between 10 to 15 people had a beer to celebrate finishing the race.

"I've never seen anything like it before. It's such a typical Irish thing to happen," she said.
