Special day for Sweeney twins

A special set of twin brothers will celebrate a milestone next Thursday when they turn thirty.
Hughie and Eamonn Sweeney are household names in the parish of Gaoth Dobhair, and are renowned throughout the county for their sporting talents and dance moves.
This is a very important birthday for the Sweeney family who were told back in 1981 when the boys were born and diagnosed with Down Syndrome that their future was very uncertain.
But Hughie and Eamonn have proven that having a disability does not necessarily need to hold you back from having a fulfilled life.
