Daffodil Day Upcoming Fundraiser Events in East Cork

By Seamus Whelehan


Despite rain, hail, snow and freezing temperatures Daffodils are beginning to come into bloom, their golden trumpets announcing an end to the gloom of Winter.

The annual fundraiser, centred on the first flower of Spring, represents the Irish Cancer Society’s campaign to bring hope to cancer patients and those affected by the disease.

Every 3 minutes a person in Ireland will get a cancer diagnosis.  According to figures released by the National Cancer Research Institute (NCRI) almost 4,000 in Cork received a cancer diagnosis between 2014 and 2016.
