Today, Monday saw the Leitrim Observer going Pink in order to raise money for Breast Cancer Research.
October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
This month men and women of all ages are being encouraged to become more breast aware.
Breast awareness is about knowing what feels normal for you, that way if any changes occur you will recognise them much sooner.
Early detection is your best defence against breast cancer!
In Ireland, 1 in 10 women will develop breast cancer during their lifetime. Breast Cancer is more common in women over the age of 50, however women of any age can develop breast cancer.
Pictured are the Observer staff: Gerry Taylor, Leonie McKiernan, John Connolly, Philip Rooney, Melanie Bainbridge, Regina McGrath, Claire McGovern, Leah Delorey and Martha Clancy. Kneeling in front are Frankie Smith, Donal O’Grady and Della Beirne. The man behind the camera is Willie Donnellan.
Frankie and Claire would like to thank all the staff for taking part in this special event.
Our team is comprised of Bob and Linda Carey, our advisors and volunteers. Without them, changing lives one smile at a time would never be possible!
