Irish Cancer Soc offer Community Health Education Programme to Clubs


he Ladies Gaelic Football Association is delighted to announce that it is working in conjunction with the Irish Cancer Society in a number of counties across the country this October to introduce our members to important health messages on how to reduce their risk of cancer and how to spot it early through the Society’s national Community Health Education Programme.


The message of the programme is a positive one and encourages women to be pro-active about their health, focussing on two things:

  • Raising awareness about healthy lifestyle choices which can reduce your risk of breast cancer and other women’s cancers.
  • Highlighting the signs to look for to encourage early detection of breast, cervical and other cancers.


Two sessions are being offered to each group of women:

  • The first session, on Women and Cancer, can takes approx. 1-1 ½ hours
  • A second session can be arranged as a follow-up which can address any further queries.

NOTE – a limited number of events are available in a selection of counties across the country.  Apply early to avoid disappointment
