Nicky Byrne and Ireland’s oldest boy band in town, the Bolton Street Band, joined forces to launch Specsavers 2014 sound check Ireland roadshow.

Nicky and his band from the Friends of the Elderly were on hand at the launch to talk about the importance of hearing health.

As a former member of Westlife and now a Broadcaster on 2FM Nicky knows the importance of good hearing.

Speaking about his involvement with the campaign pitch perfect Nicky said: “My hearing has always been of utmost importance to me given my choice of career in music and now broadcasting.

“Good hearing health is imperative to living a healthy, happy and active life yet it’s not something we give much thought to.

“It’s great to see Specsavers provide a free platform for people to get their hearing checked and to raise awareness about the importance of hearing.

“I really hope that people take the opportunity to have a free hearing screening at the booth.”

The campaign, now in its third year, will also give the people the opportunity to speak to a qualified Specsavers audiologist about any concerns and avail of a complimentary hearing test.

Specsavers audiologist Rory Perry said: “Emotionally, physically and mentally, untreated hearing loss places stress on individuals that can impact negatively on all areas of daily life.

“People who suffer from hearing loss often say that they feel isolated from the world going on around them.”
