About Daffodil Day

Daffodil Day is the Irish Cancer Society's biggest fundraising event of the year. Your support helps us to provide free services and support to cancer patients and their families across Ireland.


Your efforts can make a big impact

Your support makes a big difference to the lives of people with cancer. Your support means that we can provide the type of help that people need – whether that is counselling hours, transport to and from cancer treatment, investing in cancer research or fulfilling a persons wish to die at home.

Did you know?

Did you know? The Irish Cancer Society typically receives only 5% of its income from the Government so it is thanks to our amazing donors, fundraisers and volunteers that we are able to provide services and support that make sure that nobody in Ireland has to face cancer alone.

"Having someone to talk to and share with is a huge weight off your shoulders, there is always someone there to listen - you will never be fully alone. It’s so good to know those free resources are available when you need them.” – Counselling service user.
