About Us

Breast Cancer Ireland is a registered charity (CHY 19926) established to raise significant funding to support pioneering research programmes nationally as well as to promote education & awareness on the importance of breast health amongst women of all ages.


We want to transform Breast Cancer from often being a fatal disease into a treatable long term illness


We aim to achieve our Vision by speeding up Breast Cancer research discovery times in Ireland


  • To create a National Bio & Patient Profiling Resource – where the eight designated cancer centres collaborate and share samples, thereby increasing volumes available for all Clinicians and Scientists to access.
  • To create a State of Art Clinical Breast Cancer Research Facility offering translational therapies…from bench to bedside for patients diagnosed
  • To heighten awareness and education on the importance of breast health amongst women of all ages – Earlier detection will save lives.
