Relay for Life Ennis, an annual event that has become a symbol of strength and solidarity in the fight against cancer, is excited to announce the rebranding for the 2024 event.

To better represent the support from not only Ennis but the entire county, the event is officially changing its name to Relay for Life Clare. The Relay for Life Clare committee is eager to continue fostering the same community spirit while expanding their reach to engage more cancer survivors and teams from across the county.

The Relay for Life Clare committee has also announced the support of Clare Rose, Aisling O’Connor, who has joined as an ambassador for the event.

Aisling shares her enthusiasm for the cause, stating, “I’m absolutely thrilled to be involved with Relay for Life this year. It’s such an incredible opportunity to contribute to a cause that’s so close to my heart.

“The spirit of community and support that surrounds this event is also really inspiring. Being part of Relay for Life is not just about fundraising, it’s about solidarity, remembering, hope, and the celebration of life. I can’t wait to see what Relay for Life can achieve this year!”

The 24-hour walking event, scheduled for June 15-16, 2024, promises to be a unique and beautiful opportunity to celebrate cancer survivors, remember those lost to cancer, and stand shoulder-to-shoulder with those currently battling the disease while raising vital funds for the Irish Cancer Society. During the 24-hour walk, a festival of fun takes place, which unites the community in the fight against cancer.

Auriol Considine, Committee Chair, expressed her optimism for the upcoming event, saying, “We are so grateful for all the generosity we have received in previous years from businesses and the community over the years and hope to continue to provide the county with the opportunity to come together to celebrate, remember and fight back.”
