Get Ready to Relay

Relay For Life is a 24-hour community celebration which honours all those who are affected by cancer. At Relay For Life, whole communities come together united against cancer to Celebrate life, Remember loved ones lost to the disease, and Fight Back against cancer by raising awareness about cancer prevention as well as raising funds to support the Irish Cancer Society’s mission to stop cancer.

Funds raised by Relay For Life support life-saving cancer research, as well as provide support and care for cancer patients and their families in every community in Ireland.

Ennis held its first Relay for Life event on 23 June 2018 and it was an instant success.

Over 500 people gathered in Tim Smythe Park in Ennis united in the fight against cancer and in 2019 these numbers more than doubled. We are thrilled to be back live in 2023! Check out our Facebook and Instagram pages for a more detailed plan of events closer to the date.
