An inspiring father and son from Cushendall have been named Heart Heroes by British Heart Foundation Northern Ireland (BHF NI) at a special awards ceremony held in Belfast City Hall recently.
The charity's annual Heart Hero Awards recognise the exceptional contribution people make to fighting heart disease.
Hugh and Neil McManus were joint winners in the Inspiration category for their efforts to raise awareness of CPR.
