Tomorrow in the Phoenix Park, red heads from all over the country will gather together under the Papel Cross to celebrate Kiss a Ginger Day.

Canadian Derek Forgie is the main man behind Kiss a Ginger Day; an internationally celebrated anti-bullying holiday, which aims to stomp out bullying and celebrate differences.

Cooper chatted to Derek to find out what he has planned for Kiss A Ginger Day this weekend.
