Wednesday September 19th has been designated as Mouth Cancer Awareness Day here in Ireland.
Members of the public are encouraged to visit their local participating dentist or Cork University Dental School and Hospital for a FREE mouth cancer examination.
Over 300 cases of cancer of the mouth (oral cavity and pharynx) are detected in Ireland each year. If detected early these cancers are easily treated. A mouth cancer exam is painless and quick, takes only minutes and could save your life.

President Higgins launched ‘Being Young and Irish’, a consultation process with young people aged 17 – 26, earlier this summer. The consultation process includes a series of Regional Workshops as well as the opportunity to make online submissions, culminating in a National Seminar in November of this year. This is the first in a series of seminars, aimed at shaping Ireland’s shared future that will take place during this Presidency.
WHAT ARE YOU BEING ASKED TO DO?
The President and his team have asked An Gaisce to provide volunteers for the four Regional Workshops and the National Seminar of the ‘Being Young and Irish’ initiative, the precise dates and locations of which are listed below. We need SIX people at each Regional Workshop and six at the national seminar. Please aim to pick a location which is closest to you. We will be especially needing people outside of the Dublin area so if you do live in Munster or Connaught please strongly consider volunteering there. Travel costs will be reimbursed by Gaisce where necessary and when deemed appropriate.
