The first trio arrived at the maternity unit of the Ulster Hospital in Dundonald last Tuesday when Brendan and Kirsty McMenamin, from Downpatrick, became parents to a baby girl and two boys.

Little Zoey, Cameron and Brody weighed in at between 2.14kg (4.7lbs) and 2.27kg (5lbs).

The following day, Claire and Johnny Stewart, from Donaghadee, welcomed three baby girls.

Annie, Libby and Evie tipped the scales at weights between 1.99kg (4.4lbs) and 2.31kg (5.1lbs).
