The parents of a red-haired teenager say their daughter has been bullied online since a nightclub launched a "Shag a Ginger" night.

Anthony and Michelle Dunleavy, from Glenvar, Co Donegal, say they are "disgusted" at the event due to take place at Letterkenny's Pulse nightclub.

The club says free condoms will be given out on the night.

"It's so crass, it's hard to even think of the words," said Anthony Dunleavy. "My daughter has been tagged on social media by people; it's cyber-bullying and basically discriminates against redheads."

A Garda spokesman confirmed a complaint was made but that there are no laws against discrimination on grounds of appearance.

No-one from The Pulse was available for comment.

The student night for the nearby Letterkenny IT will have hairdressers on hand for anyone who wants to dye their hair red too.
