Hi all,


As part of our upcoming Football Cul Camp, we are delighted to announce that we have been selected by the Marie Keating Foundation to host their Mobile Information Unit for a day.

The date will be Thursday 15th August, and it will have information available on cancer, and people available to discuss any concerns on cancer etc..
(note: it is not for screenings).


Their mobile unit will be at the following locations on Thursday 15th August:

The Square, Kinvara from 10:30am - 1:00pm
GAA Pitch from 2:00pm - 3:30pm

We encourage you to spread the word around amongst family, friends and neighbours.

Further information can be got on their website at

Mobile Information Units
The Marie Keating Foundation has three purpose built Mobile Information Units that travel around the regions of Ireland. There is a nurse on board who is available to provide cancer information to the general public free of charge in an informal and non-intrusive way. Their nurse can talk to people on a one to one basis in a private area on board about any concerns that a person might have about cancer, either for themselves or for someone else such as family member or friend. (This is not a screening service.) The units can facilitate one to one consultation and information presentation. The Mobile Unit is stocked with take home information leaflets on Bowel, Lung, Mouth, Skin, Testicular, Prostate, Cervical, Ovarian and Breast cancer.
