Frank's big battle

Funny man Frank Carson is one of Northern Ireland's best-known and best-loved exports. He has been making people laugh for many decades. In the word's of his catch-phrase, it's the way he tells them that has made him a household name.

But life at the moment is no laughing matter for the 84-year-old as he battles against stomach cancer. His legion of fans around the world will no doubt be saying a prayer today that he beats the disease and gets back on stage for his planned last performance in December. We all need something to cheer us up and Frank's just the man to do that.
