Real men actually do wear pink

Real men actually do wear pink

As if proof were ever needed one of Ireland’s top GAA footballers proved that it was perfectly OK to wear pink at an awareness event for breast cancer in Lough Eske Castle last night.

Karl Lacey arrived and joined many of his male and female friends at the Donegal Dragons breast cancer event all clad in pink.

Even though it was a lighthearted theme, there was a strong message delivered to the 200 strong audience by recovering cancer sufferers “If in doubt, check it out”. It was also highlighted the fact that men can also suffer breast cancer which may have come as a surprise to many.

Helen Kelly also give a highly inspirational talk on wellness  and how one should try to live their lives.

“If you mind your mind, your mind will mind you” she said.
