TV star and Rathangan native Brian Dowling stopped traffic today at Applegreen on Edward Street in Newbridge. He was on hand to launch the chain's birthday celebrations, offering cut-price fuel and sweets to customers.
Under the theme of ‘24/7’, the celebrations saw Ireland’s largest forecourt operator run a promotional sale of confectionary items for just 24c, as well as a fuel sale that offered fuel to customers at just 24.7c per litre for an hour each across a selection of 24 outlets across the country.
News of the deals spread quickly over social media and by word of mouth this afternoon, causing a build up of traffic in the vicinity of some petrol stations where the deals were on offer.
